Skilled Workers: English Language

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 10 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what assessment he has made of the likely effect on the UK restaurant trade of skilled chefs from abroad needing to pass the English language test requirement. (175496)

I have been asked to reply.

The Government have not yet made a full assessment of the likely effect on the UK restaurant trade of skilled chefs from abroad needing to pass the English language test requirement. Full impact assessments for each tier of the PBS will be published in due course.
