Lib Dems: Government immigration policy holds UK back

by Steve Beasant on 16 May, 2018

Responding to reports that more than 1,600 engineers, tech specialists, teachers and NHS staff offered jobs in the UK were denied visas between December and March, Liberal Democrat Science Spokesperson Layla Moran MP said:

“These figures are truly shocking. These are people that the Government should be bending over backwards to welcome to the UK. Instead they are being denied visas for vital roles in our NHS, schools, universities, science and tech sectors.

“These are some of the most saleable people in the jobs market who can and will go elsewhere if the Government doesn’t get a grip and sort this situation out as a matter of urgency.”
