Migrant workers are not so much taking our jobs as doing them better, a survey found yesterday.

In a poll of 500 firms for the Institute of Directors, employers rated workers from abroad as significantly harder working, more reliable and more skilled than British ones.

Migrants were rated better by a “large margin” on their work ethic, reliability, education and attendance, while British workers were not rated above their foreign counterparts on any of the criteria used in the survey.

Only 16 per cent of those surveyed said they took on foreign workers because they were cheaper.

More than three quarters said that immigrants contributed to the economy.

But 73 per cent felt that the Government’s immigration policy was ineffective and called for limits on numbers allowed to work from new EU member states such as Romania and Bulgaria.
