Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to Govt on UK’s future immigration system

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the Government’s announcement on details of the UK’s future immigration system, said:

“We will scrutinise the proposals on visas very carefully. The Government has rushed through immigration legislation with very little detail in the middle of a global pandemic.

“There are real concerns that this will cause major problems for our NHS and our care sector, at a time when we are still waiting for the Government to make good on their promise to scrap the unfair immigration health surcharge for workers who were being charged to access the very services they were keeping going to help others during the toughest of times.”
