Does my hon. Friend believe, as I do, that Ministers should consider carefully, when they compile the points-based system, work force needs in key areas, particularly the health service? The Select Committee on Health will report shortly on work force planning. That will make interesting reading, but it is already publicly known that we may have about 3,200 hospital consultants for whom there will be no jobs. Should that be considered in the points-based system?
