Excessive inward migration is damaging productivity

Very important Daily Politics today, looking at the issue of migration:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b060kmwp

It seems ridiculous that a programme of this quality should be hidden away at lunchtimes - it should be on at 7pm competing with Channel 4 News.

Frank Field made the point that excessive inward migration is damaging productivity by removing the incentive to invest in research and development (over the longer term the cumulative effect of this must result in a massive fall in productivity).
