Changes to UK Immigration policy which would limit immigration from non-European Union countries are highly likely under the new UK coalition government deal which favours the Conservative party’s manifesto promises on the issue.
The immigration capping policy would continue to utilize points-based entry controls (Tier 1, Tier 2 Point Based System etc.), apply restrictions when new countries join Europe and crack down on abuse of the student visa system.
The Liberal Democrats have had to give up their emigration policy of region-based emigrants and amnesty to illegal emigrants who had been in the UK for 10 years or more.
David Cameron’s party aim to reduce emigration to the levels of the 1990’s – to tens instead of hundreds of thousands a year.
