Beware of old men in MACs!

Isn't it too late for a new body, the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), to consider the wider social impact of immigration when nearly 1.5m immigrants have arrived in just the last two years?

Even if the social impact was negative, could the UK reduce current levels of immigration whilst it remains a member of the European Union?

If John Reid claims there is "no systematic weighing up of the benefits and costs of immigration", how can consecutive Governments always claim that the economic benefits of immigration outweigh the costs!?!
