Restuarant owners cry foul over immigration cap
June 29, 2010 by Webmaster
Curry house owners believe moves to clamp down on immigration could harm their businesses.
Indian restaurants in Leicester say the UK’s first cap on non-EU arrivals could make it harder for them to recruit homegrown chefs.
Home Secretary Theresa May has introduced a temporary limit on immigrants to prevent a “surge” of applicants in the run-up to the permanent cap next April.
But restaurant bosses say their businesses rely on chefs who have wide experience of working in eateries all over India and come to the UK to earn a living.
