Immigration cap report will be published November 18

| More

I blogged this morning about the fact that the Migration Advisory Committee is yet to publish its report on the immigration cap. It appears it will be published this month on the 18th.

The report to government will influence the immigration cap that replaces the current interim one.

"On 18 November 2010 the MAC will publish its report to the government on the level for 2011/12 of the annual limits on economic migration to the UK under Tier 1 and Tier 2 of the points-based system," said MAC. 

It will appear here on the morning of November 18. Mark it in your diary and send me your thoughts when it is published.


You don't have to wait until 18th November to comment on the immigration cap. Damien Green has already said that Tier 2 Inter-company-transfers (ICT's) will not be included in this cap, thus on shore IT workers will continue to be shipped in by their thousands & the demise of UK IT will continue. These visas are enabling thousands of Indian IT staff to come and replace IT workers in the UK on vastly reduced salaries. Ask how many of these visas have been issued each year in the last 5 years and it really will shock you!! The staff brought in are paid way under the UK average salary for the same job, they do not pay tax in the UK and the company can exploit Nat Insurance contribution loop holes. Does this make economic sense in the current climate? NO. Who is making the money? All the companies who are currently bringing in the On shore workers & of course the growing Indian economy. What about UK IT companies who pay British IT salaries? I can't imagine there will be many of them left in the future.

What can we do about it? Nothing. No-one's listening and no-one's interested, particularly the UK Government.
