British Home Office Confirms Cap On Migration
London - By Charles Kelly
The number of non-EU workers entering the UK will be controlled by a new limit, the Home Secretary announced this week.
In a statement to the House of Commons Home Office boss Theresa May confirmed leaked reports that ‘net migration will be scaled back to the levels of the 1990's - with the effect that it will be in the tens of thousands rather than hundreds of thousands'. Introducing a limit on migrants from outside Europe coming here to work is just one of the ways the government intends to achieve this.
Leading business figures have already criticised the cap on immigration commenting that government-imposed limit on immigration could pose a risk to the UK recovery and will ‘hit growth'.
Care home owners have also expressed concerns that the move could affect their ability to maintain staffing levels.
Details of how the final limit will be delivered will be agreed following a 12-week government consultation with businesses. In the meantime, an interim limit will be introduced to ensure that there is no ‘closing down sale' and the number of work visas issued stays below 2009 levels.
The results of the consultation on the permanent limit will pave the way for the government's fundamental changes on the way in which workers from outside the European Union (EU) will be chosen to come and work in the UK. FULL STORY...
