Come here, work and go home: UK tells migrants

London, June 9 (PTI): As part of continuing efforts to reduce migration from India and other countries outside the European Union, the David Cameron government today announced proposals that seek to prevent foreign professionals from settling here permanently.

The proposals, announced in a consultation exercise, will affect Indian skilled workers as well as domestic workers such as cooks and ‘ayahs’, who travel to Britain with their employers.

Immigration minister Damian Green said: “We want the brightest and best workers to come to the UK, make a strong contribution to our economy while they are here, and then return home.” 

Campaign groups said that if foreign professionals were not allowed to settle here permanently, they would rather migrate to countries such as Canada and Australia.

Amit Kapadia of the Highly Skilled Migrants Forum told PTI that it will launch a protest against the plans.
