Prime Minister promises more training to replace migrant workers affected by the new immigration laws

PRIME Minister Gordon Brown has pledged to help the industry fill the gaps in Indian restaurants left by new tougher rules on migrant workers by training people already in the UK to step up.

Brown said, “We will make it possible for people who are in this country to be trained to be either chefs or restaurant workers in the industry.”

He defended his stance on immigration as “fair” despite the Immigration Advisory Service stating that restrictions on low skilled workers from outside the EU could cause “irreparable damage” to the curry industry.

The industry urged Brown and the Home Office to reconsider its new restriction on migrant workers for the good of the 9,000 plus Indian restaurants in the UK.
