Results 1–20 of 28014 for immigration

Finance (No. 2) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (26 Apr 2017)

Lord Haskel: ...their response to that, the Government have said, “Yes, this could be a problem”. Is this because people were seconded from the Department for Education to the department for Brexit? If we are trying to reverse our dependency on immigration and rely more on the skills of our own people, we will have to do a lot better than that. Since the election was announced, we all seem to...

Higher Education and Research Bill (26 Apr 2017)

Richard Fuller: The hon. Gentleman is both right and wrong. It is a bit of a stretch to say that the student numbers distort the overall immigration numbers, because the net implication of student migration is quite small, but his comment about the signal that this sends takes us to the point. As I said in an intervention on the Minister, there is a conundrum—an illogical position—when we include...

Digital Economy Bill: Universal service broadband obligations (26 Apr 2017)

Matthew Hancock: ...goal here is to ensure that children are prevented from accessing online pornography. Our amendment therefore redefines the scope of the material, taking an approach based on the definition of an “extreme pornographic image” in the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008. I can confirm that this does not change the definition of what is, and what is not, lawful for adults to...

Since the scheme began in January 2014 a total of 5,706 people have been resettled in the UK to the end of December 2016.

And over 200 children have already arrived in the UK under section 67 of the Immigration Act 2016. The UK has pledged over £2.3 billion in aid in response to the events in Syria and the region - our largest ever humanitarian response to a single crisis. Within...

Steel Industry - Question for Short Debate (25 Apr 2017)

Lord Suri: ...the lesson of the 1980s and make strong plans for industries in a declining phase. Workers must have strong support and meaningful alternative career options. In this post-Brexit world with lower immigration, there is plenty to do.

Food and Farming: Employment Opportunities — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

George Eustice: ...reassurance to those living and working in the UK now. The hon. Lady asked about seasonal labour. Having a controlled migration policy and ending the presumption of free movement does not mean pulling up the drawbridge and stopping all immigration. It simply means what it says—having control of migration. It would be for a future Government to decide what work permits they wanted to...

We have also updated our travel advice for Israel, recommending that concerned UK nationals contact the Israeli Embassy for further information. The British Government has been...

Lord Griffiths of Burry Port: ...dealt with culture and language. In the 40 years that I have been actively committed to these matters, I have never felt that there was a more urgent time for us to revisit them than now, when the question of immigration has been raised. Let it be said that it is a proper question, and that we must look at it as a society. It raises questions and, whatever side of the political divide we...
