Government advisors back heavy cut in visas


Strict limits that could stop tens of thousands of students and skilled workers entering the UK have been recommended by the Government’s advisers on immigration, the Migration Advisory Committee.


Student numbers will have to be more than halved and family visas cut by 20 per cent, alongside a proposed reduc- tion of between 6,300 and 12,600 in


the number of non-EU migrant work- ers for 2011-12, the Migration Advisory Committee said. More than 87,000 student visas must go by 2015, said the independent body.


Opponents of the visa cuts say the government faces a difficult choice between honouring its election pledge and doing harm to the economy and society in the UK.


Restaurant turns away man with guide dog


A Salisbury curry restaurant mistak- enly turned away a diner because he is blind and deaf and has a guide dog. Justin Wright went to the Vindaloo Night Indian restaurant with a friend, but staff refused to let them in the door because of guide dog, Kyle.


Kyle is one of only a few dual purpose dogs available in the UK and acts as a seeing eye dog when outside and as a hearing dog in the home and office.


It is an offence under the Disability Discrimination Act not to allow entry to restaurants to people with guide dogs and restaurant owners are obliged to make ‘reasonable adjustments’ to their premises to give disabled people the same service as anyone else. Guide dogs are exempt from rules which pre- vent other dogs accessing restaurants and other areas where food is served.


Restaurant manager Kalam Ali said


the member of staff responsible for turning Mr Wright away was new to the job and that all members of staff have now received extra training. He has apologised for the incident and has invited Mr Wright to return to the restaurant.


A spokesman for Guide Dogs for the Blind, which wrote to the owners of


Vindaloo Nights to remind them of the law, said: “In practical terms, guide dogs do not disrupt the everyday oper- ation of businesses or premises. They are trained to sit at their owner’s feet at all times, not to bother other people and not to climb on furniture.”


Fund raiser helps student make Uganda trip


Diners at a local restaurant have helped raise more than £800 for a Woodford Green schoolgirl who is hoping to travel to Uganda with fellow pupils to build an orphanage. Aimee


Fahey, who lives in Ongar, has to first raise £2,850 in sponsorship to pay for the trip and a major step towards reaching that total was taken when the Star of India in Leytonstone High Road held a special fund-raising night


attended by around 90 people.


Money was raised by a quiz and raffle, while staff also donated 70 per cent of the final food bill.
