Tories outline migration rules as Labour shelve free movement plans

by Ace Damon
Boris Johnson says every Tory candidate in the general election has told him they will back his Brexit deal in the next parliament

Conservatives have pledged to reduce immigration "generally", with the "vast majority" of migrants needing a job offer to come to the UK – no matter where they are from.

Highly qualified scientists and those wishing to start a business will be among a few exceptions.

Access to benefits will be equal between EU citizens and those from other countries, meaning a typical five-year wait for non-UK citizens, and benefits will no longer be sent abroad to support children outside the UK. .

Ministers have already made it clear that they are finally abandoning the party's longstanding commitment to reduce net migration below 100,000 a year – a goal they have never met.

The party said the new measures would save about £ 800 million a year by 2024-2025.

In announcing the plans, Interior Secretary Priti Patel said: "One of the benefits of Brexit is to regain control and make our system fairer. A conservative majority government will ensure that people who come to our great country from anywhere in the world. world will contribute on the first day ".

She added: "Immigration will finally be subject to democratic control, allowing us to reduce the overall number."

Ms. Patel's announcement came after a labor debate about her own immigration policy, with some leading figures in favor of freedom of movement and others wanting to curb the issue.

But after six hours of talking in London on Saturday, Jeremy Corbyn said there was "unanimous agreement" between his parallel cabinet and the main union sponsors in the party manifesto.

Labor Party President Ian Lavery told Sky News that the discussions were "very friendly" with "very little disagreement."

Labor would not comment on the content of the manifesto, but Sky News deputy political editor Sam Coates and political correspondent Tom Rayner were informed by sources that Labor filed its conference resolution to maintain free circulation and, in instead, they have renegotiated migration policy with the EU if Britain votes to go out in a second referendum.

Corbyn described the Labor manifesto – due out Thursday – as a "transformative document that will change the lives of the people of this country for the better."

Among the policies to be included are free dental checks for everyone in England, with the party announcing plans to reverse band 1 fees, introduced in 1951 on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Johnson said all conservative candidates in the general election had agreed to support his agreement with Brexit in the next parliament.

The prime minister has been repeatedly frustrated at Commons trying to approve his deal, but said people can be "100% sure" that he will be able to approve if they vote for the conservative majority on December 12.

He told the Sunday Telegraph that all 635 party candidates were committed to the deal he made with Brussels and promised that his government would "unblock" parliament and hand over Brexit.

Johnson needs 326 conservative candidates to be elected next month to secure the majority, which he says is the only way voters can be sure the 2016 referendum will be delivered.

The prime minister added: "I am offering a pact with the people: if you vote for the Conservative, you can be 100% sure that a conservative majority government will unlock parliament and complete Brexit."

Last month, Johnson – who is facing new claims about the extent of his controversial relationship with US businesswoman Jennifer Arcuri – saw his withdrawal bill in principle passed by lawmakers.

They voted in favor by 329 votes to 299, but the prime minister's joy was short-lived as parliament rejected the swift timetable he had set by 322 votes to 308.

The second vote effectively paid off its promise to get the UK out of the EU on Halloween – "no, if, but".

He also stated that he "would rather die in a ditch" than ask for an extension to Brussels, but he did just that and had the Brexit date postponed until January 31.
