Frank Field: Migrants take nine out of 10 jobs - Telegraph Full story above. "Frank Field, the former Labour minister brought in to advise the Coalition last year, says that the public wants tougher sanctions forcing the long-term unemployed back to work. In an article for The Daily Telegraph, he dismisses proposals to simplify the benefits system as Gordon Browns approach, on speed. He calls for good, reliable people who have worked and paid National Insurance to be prioritised for help above others, particularly those who have not contributed to society. In the first year of the Coalition, 87 per cent of the 400,000 newly created jobs have gone to immigrants as Britons fail to chase work, according to new official figures uncovered by the Labour MP. Under previous Labour administrations the figure was about 80 per cent. Mr Field, who was recruited by Tony Blair to think the unthinkable but was unable to introduce radical Labour policies, predicts that the Coalitions approach will ultimately fail.
