More on the UK Immigration Cap

Later today the Home Secretary Theresa May will announce the specific details on the temporary Immigration Cap.

It is believed that she will limit the number of workers to 24,100 between now and April Next year (2011). One of the aims of this cap is to limit a potential rush of applications before the permanent cap is introduced next April.

At the same time there will be a consultation process for deciding on how to introduce the levels for the permanent cap.

This cap has been the subject of much debate recently where industry professionals argue that companies need to be able to bring skilled professionals to the UK in order to fulfill roles that require specific training or skills not necessarily found in the UK to the same level.

One source claimed that certain industries will be harder hit than others worry about their ability to hire skilled workers with this new Cap being introduced.
