Cameron defends ‘no limit’ immigration plan for Indians heading to Britain

Cameron defends ‘no limit’ immigration plan for Indians heading to Britain | Heart of Asia | Scoop.it

DAVID Cameron has risked controversy by pledging to make it easier for Indian immigrants to come to Britain with a special "same day" visa service.

He also said there was “no limit” to the number of Indians who would be allowed to study at UK universities and stay on in graduate-level jobs after they qualified.

The PM has taken a huge trade delegation to India including representatives of the Premier League and the London Underground as he tries to strike business deals with the Asian country.

And in exchange for making visa rules more flexible, the Tory leader wants India to relax business laws so British companies can invest in the country's booming economy.

Mr Cameron defended his appeal for Indian businessmen and students to come to the UK and said it did not undermine the Government’s message on getting net annual immigration down into the tens of thousands.

He said: “We want to have a proper policy of controlled immigration and immigration has fallen by a quarter under our Government.

“But we want to make sure that we are attracting at the same time the best and the brightest. We do want to see Indian university students and there is no limit on those who come, if they have got a university place.

“We are introducing today a same-day visa service for business people who want to come to Britain for linking up their businesses for trade and other things like that.”

Mr Cameron revealed he has been discussing the building projects with the Indian government which could provide opportunities for British planners, architects, construction firms and finance specialists.

Speaking to workers at the Mumbai headquarters of the Anglo-Dutch Unilever group, Mr Cameron said: “Britain is one of the most open, easy-to-invest-in countries in the world. We are incredibly welcoming.

As I said: Cameron to Indians - Gimme money, Indians to Cameron - Giveus visas!
