UK Government confirms annual cap on immigration


Following on from the Migration Advisory report published last week, UK Home Secretary Theresa May this week made a statement in the House of Commons regarding the limits for non-EEA economic migrants as of April 2011.

This briefing from CMS Cameron McKenna has the details, including the different ‘tiers’ of immigration and how the government seeks to end the link between temporary migration and settlement.

For those short on time, the briefing also contains a handy ‘Conclusion and planning for the future’ paragraph of key messages that those in business should disseminate to colleagues.
