Baroness Howe of Idlicote voted in the minority (Content).

Moved By Lord Hunt of Kings Heath

That this House regrets that Her Majesty's Government have laid before the House Statements of Changes in Immigration Rules (HC 59, laid on 28 June; and HC 96, laid on 15 July) in a way that limits direct Parliamentary scrutiny of the level of the immigration cap; and further regrets that the Government's cap policy in relation to highly skilled migrants will damage the UK economy.
Relevant documents: 4th and 6th reports from the Merits Committee.
