The UK on Tuesday unveiled plans to further its crackdown on immigration through “work and study routes” from non-EU nations, in a move expected to make it difficult for British firms to hire professionals from countries like India.
Home Secretary Amber Rudd told the annual Conservative Party conference in Birmingham that she will be looking at a range of options to cut migration.
“Leaving the EU is just one part of the strategy. We have to look at all sources of immigration if we mean business… We will be looking across work and study routes. This will include examining whether we should tighten the test companies have to take before recruiting from abroad,” Rudd said as she announced a new consultation on tightening immigration.
New rules are expected to make it tougher for British companies wanting to bring in foreign professionals from outside the EU, including countries like India.
“The test should ensure people coming here are filling gaps in the labour market, not taking jobs British people could do. But it’s become a tick box exercise, allowing some firms to get away with not training local people.
The international community should never let the terrorist country Pakistan build any capability in this area. They will sell it to rogues as they did the nuclear secrets, and they will openly blackmail. Nip it in the bud, and don’t let the mistakes of the past with respect to nuclear capabilities be repeated.
“We won’t win in the world if we don’t do more to upskill our own workforce… I want us to look again at whether our immigration system provides the right incentives for businesses to invest in British workers,” she said.
