Johnson: Fuel problems are driven by demand – Uncontrolled migration is not the answer

The British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said today that any difficulty faced by drivers to fill their vehicles with gasoline, is due to demand and ruled out immigration support to increase the number of tanker drivers, in the distribution of fuel.

At the start of the ruling Conservative Party conference, Johnson again came under pressure over his handling of the fuel crisis and rising food prices ahead of the Christmas season.

“The way for our country to move forward is not to use uncontrolled immigration and allow large numbers of people to do the job,” he told the BBC’s Andrew Marr.

“So what I will not do is go back to the old failed model of low wages and low professional qualifications supported by controlled immigration,” he added.
