Home Secretary Priti Patel updates MPs on new points-based immigration system
Home Secretary, Priti Patel, has made a statement to the House of Commons on the introduction of the Government's proposed new post-Brexit points-based immigration system, as officially announced on 18 February 2020. The system would operate with 70 points required, achievable through a variety of criteria, for overseas citizens to be able to work in the UK. The Shadow Immigration Minister, Bell Ribeiro Addy, criticised the policy and suggested the requirement to speak English to a certain level constituted "dog-whistle politics".https://www.parliament.uk/business/news/2020/february/statement-on-points-based-immigration-system/
