THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT is planning to make companies list all their foreign workers.

The proposals, revealed by the UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd at the Conservative Party conference yesterday, are intended to “prevent migrants taking jobs [that] British people can do”.

The move has sparked a backlash among opposition MPs and business leaders, who point out that migrants benefit the economy. About 600,000 Irish-born immigrants live in the UK.

We want to know: Would the proposals make you less likely to consider working in the UK?


Poll Results:

Yes (5365)
No (3074)
I'm not sure (711)
