People will have the chance to quiz politicians on the progress of the 28 proposals to come out of last year’s immigration inquiry.

Boston Borough Council will hold an open meeting on May 16 to explore its task and finish group report into the ‘social impact of population change’.

Members of the public will be able to make comments and can ask questions without needing to submit them in advance.

The meeting of the corporate and community scrutiny committee at the Municipal Buildings in West Street will begin at 6.30pm.

It will consider progress made on the 28 recommendations and representatives from some of the organisations which helped the council develop the report will attend.

The meeting is expected to hear that progress has already been made in areas of concern involving alcohol-related anti-social behaviour, sales of alcohol, migrants not exercising treaty rights, rogue gangmasters, employment of migrant workers, licensing homes of multiple occupation, promoting career and employment opportunities with local companies, school places, litter and street cleaning and health and social care issues.
