In­surance idea for mi­grants

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk & World Update -

FIRMS could be forced to take out pri­vate health in­surance for mi­grant work­ers in a bid to ease the “un­due” pres­sure of im­mi­grants on the NHS, the Govern­ment has said. Home Sec­re­tary Theresa May an­nounced the idea as part of plans to in­tro­duce a cap on the num­bers of skilled mi­grants com­ing to the UK from out­side the EU next year. An im­me­di­ate 5% re­duc­tion has been im­posed to pre­vent a rush of ap­pli­ca­tions while an in­de­pen­dent body con­sults on where the limit should be set from April next year.
