Nick Thomas-Symonds comments on the Home Secretary’s plans to make foreign health workers pay full price for their visas

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on the Home Secretary’s plans to make foreign health workers pay full price for their visas, said:

 

“What does the Home Secretary have against NHS and care workers? Conservative plans to slap a stealth tax on frontline heroes, who have risked their own health to keep us safe through this pandemic, is shameful.

 

“The Prime Minister made a personal promise to remove the Immigration Health Surcharge for overseas workers. Now, what he gave with one hand, he seeks to take away with the other.”
