Immigration cap to take into account Indian concerns


UK Prime Minister David Cameron recently led the larg- est UK delegation to India since the end of British rule in India. This included the chancellor, George Osborne, Foreign Secretary ,William Hague, Vince Cable, Business Secretary and a number of top businessmen.


For the first time ever the British Government has said that they will take into account the views of the Indian Government on UK immigration policy. A Downing Street spokesman commented: “We want to work with India and other countries to ensure that high-skilled people can still come to Britain. We are going to talk to these coun- tries about how to implement the cap.”


The Indian Government has raised concerns about the immigration cap. Indian Commerce Minister, Anand Sharma, said when he visited the UK towards the end of June this year, that, “Our business leaders, profession- als and other institutions have stated concerns over this matter. Though we understand the United Kingdom and European Union regulations, the regime has to be inves- tor friendly and must not come in the way of free move- ment of investors and professionals.”


There is great deal of debate within the UK Government about the immigration cap. Members of the coali- tion Government from the Conservative Party tend to be tougher on immigration than the Liberal Democrat Government ministers. Indeed Vince Cable has said he would like to have as liberal an immigration policy as possible.


The temporary immigration cap of 24,100, which repre- sents a 5% reduction, is expected to increase the pro- cessing times for Tier 1 and Tier 2 visas.


Fire hits restaurant


Bangla Nites, a restaurant in Gorleston in Norfolk, has been damaged by a fire which meant it had to close for two


days. Water pipes and the kitchen area were affected, resulting in the gas and electricity being switched off while repairs were carried out.


The damage, which cost up to £5,000, to repair, may have been caused by a cigarette.
