UK immigration outlined by the new government’s five-year plan

The Coalition government has announced its five-year plan for partnership government, outlining a programme that includes Royal Mail privatisation, a major education shake-up, a welfare crackdown and a cap on UK immigration.

The plan states that the Government believes UK immigration has enriched our culture and strengthened our economy, but that it must be controlled so that people have confidence in the system.

“We also recognise that to ensure cohesion and protect our public services, we need to introduce a cap on immigration and reduce the number of non-EU immigrants,” the report stated.

The Coalition will introduce an annual limit on the number of non-EU economic migrants admitted into the UK to live and work, with both parties considering jointly the mechanism for implementing the limit.

Other changes include:
