Britain to cap non European migrants


Britain is to impose a cap on immigration from outside the European Union (EU) from next month.

Around 24,000 migrant workers from non-EU countries will be allowed into the country until April next year.

The plans will be formally announced on Monday by the UK Home Secretary, Theresa May.

She will then begin a consultation process leading to a permanent limit on non-European migrants.

One of Britain’s main recruitment organisations, the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, criticised the cap, saying it would lead to a shortage of skilled workers.
