MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The Labour leader reiterated his support of the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union,
"Those that work in our health service, make sure our health service survives are often people that have come to live in this country either from outside Europe or within Europe <…> Migration actually is a plus to our economy as a whole. Those people pay a lot in taxes, receive much less on average in benefits than the rest of the community and make an amazing contribution," Corbyn told the ITV channel in an interview.
Supporters of the UK exit from the bloc argue that EU membership has eroded Britain’s independence to legislate, direct its economy and control its borders. Opponents warn that leaving the European Union could deeply harm the country’s economy.
