The immigration cap is "pointless" because it will make little difference to the number of migrant workers taking "British jobs", according to the government's skills tsar. Chris Humphries, chief executive of the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UK CES), said limiting the number of people from outside Europe entering the country to work would not tackle the real problem which was "causing the public the greatest concern". He said the issue was that the vast majority of migrant workers arriving in the UK were from Europe, which the Government was powerless to do anything about. This group also typically ended up in lower-wage jobs, competing directly with British workers, he said. Mr Humphries comments come as the government is to reveal the level of the immigration cap on Tuesday. Theresa May, the Home Secretary, and Damian Green, the Immigration Minister, will tell businesses how many non-EU workers they can bring into the country. The initial temporary cap has been controversial, with many businesses saying that the limit has blocked the hiring of key talent. Sunday Telegraph, b5
