Parliament examines immigration stats row

This blog had a walk-on part in the argument between immigration minister Phil Woolas and the Office of National Statistics, with Woolas' critical comments about the ONS published here, following a Fabian seminar on immigration, and my successful challenge to Paul Dacre over the Daily Mail's mis-reporting on immigration and citizenship.

The Public Administration Select Committee held a public hearing yesterday to examine this, with Woolas and the head of the ONS.

The Daily Mail continues to take a keen interest, and reports on the hearing this morning.

A video of the evidence session can be seen on parliamenttv.
