To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations his Department has received on the proposed new points-based system of immigration from community groups who will be affected. (134354)

As part of the consultation for the points-based system, my Department has conducted formal research and face to face engagement with individuals and community group representatives across industry and other sectors. A total of 517 written responses were received. We continue to engage with groups representative of those affected by the points-based system. Informal consultation continues at a national regional level as we continue to develop the points-based system ahead of roll out.
