Over the weekend, the former Universities Minister, Mr Gyimah, suggested that the Prime Minister was not acting in the national interest. On that theme, Joseph Johnson has said:

“I was in strong disagreement with keeping foreign students in the immigration cap. The sooner it is dropped, the better.”

I am glad that he agrees with us on that. We have been told to expect the immigration White Paper later this week. Can the Secretary of State tell us whether it will finally take students out of the migration target, allowing the Government to find at least one policy that the majority of this House and indeed the country can support?
