will face skills test
----By Philippe Naughton, Times Online
Low skilled workers from outside
the European Union will no longer be able to settle in the UK
under immigration restrictions unveiled today by Charles Clarke,
the Home Secretary.
Under the new controls - announced in
Parliament as the latest "five-year plan" from Labour
- only skilled workers will be allowed to stay in Britain, as
long as they speak English and pass a "Britishness test"
in the same way as those applying for citizenship. Transcript:
