In our consultation document Employment-Related Settlement, Tier 5 and Overseas Domestic Workers, published on 9 June, we are consulting on changes to Tier 5. This includes a proposal to cap leave across the Tier 5 temporary worker route, which includes government authorised exchange schemes of which the medical training initiative is one. The consultation invites views on this proposal and a decision has not been made. Any impact will be assessed in the light of responses to the consultation.
