While speaking at parliament on Wednesday, Monaghan stated that students made valuable contributions to the UK’s economy, Sky News reports.

According to her, international students enriched the UK’s society in all sectors, including healthcare.


International students make an invaluable contribution to the economy,” she said.

In the video that went viral on Thursday, the lawmaker added, “The reality is that many students who come into the UK look beyond their studies and want their families to be part of their experience.

“Withholding overseas students from bringing their families, many will opt to go elsewhere, and any drop in international students’ numbers will cause further harm to universities that are already facing financial difficulties.”
