Moment James Cleverly announces new salary threshold for legal migrants

James Cleverly has outlined a series of new restrictions on legal immigration which he said would reduce the number of people arriving in Britain by 300,000 a year.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs Home Affairs said overseas health workers would be banned from bringing family dependents and a drastic increase in the salary threshold for skilled workers to £38,700 will result in the "greatest reduction ever made.”

“We will stop immigration from reducing the pay of British workers,” Mr Cleverly told the House of Commons. on Monday, December 4.

The strategy, which will also make it harder for Britons earning less than the national average to bring in foreign spouses, comes after net migration levels hit a record high.
