More than one-third (36 per cent) said that they or a family member had found it harder to get work because of competition from immigrants, and almost a quarter (24 per cent) said they or a family member had lost out to immigrants in the queue for council housing or other public services. Women were more hostile to immigration, 86% were against immigration, with just 14 per cent saying immigration had been a good thing, compared to 21 per cent of men.
