    Home Secretary vows to tighten immigration rules and stop migrants “taking jobs British people could do”

    Publications

    Amber Rudd, in her first major speech as the UK’s new Home Secretary, has announced new measures to tackle immigration, warning companies that foreign workers should not be taking jobs that British people should do.

    Rudd told the Conservative party conference that measures would include tightening up the test which companies must take before they can recruit foreign workers, amid concerns that it has become “a tick-box exercise, allowing some firms to get away with not training local people”. Other proposals include requiring companies to publish the number of international staff they employ. Rudd has been forced to defend this plan after it was criticised by high-profile business leaders, including the British Chambers of Commerce, which felt that the lists are intended as a “badge of shame”. Other groups welcomed the proposal as a way to prevent businesses from using cheap foreign labour.
