UK to cut number of skilled workers from outside EU

The number of skilled workers allowed into the UK from outside the EU is to be cut by 1,300, Home Secretary Theresa May has said.

Numbers will fall to 24,100 between now and April 2011, 5% less than last year.
Ministers says the temporary measure will cut the flow of immigrants while they hold a consultation on the right level for a permanent cap
