Immigration debate 'panic' - Vince Cable

22 December 2013 Last updated at 10:35 GMT

Business Secretary Vince Cable has said the debate over a cap on immigration to the UK is part of the "periodic panics" over the subject.

Talking on The Andrew Marr Show, Mr Cable agreed with Liberal Democrat leader and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg that a proposed cap of 75,000 people coming to the UK from the EU would not work and was a "populist" measure.

However, it had been right for the coalition government to seek to end the abuse of the benefit system.
