APSCO says Tier 2 ICT must be included in Immigration Cap

APSCo told Migration Advisory Committee that \”If intra-company transfers are excluded the Immigration Cap will do little to restrict the influx of non-EU IT workers to the UK.\” Ann Swain, the Chief Executive of APSCo also said that the Resident Labour Market Test should also be applied to Intra Company Transfers. She went on to say that \”There are currently no recognised skill shortages in the UK Information Technology sector and that there is a pre-existing pool of IT labour in the UK. Intra Company Transfers are used because it is easy and saves on employment costs. Employers don’t want the expense of hiring UK or EU nationals. This is nothing to do with lack of skills in the UK workforce.”
