Opposition Labour Party has set out a plan for what the UK’s immigration policy would look like if it were to win a future general election, as its leader categorically called on businesses to work towards reducing their economic dependency on migrant foreign workers, reported PTI.

Sir Keir Starmer told business leaders at the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) annual conference in Birmingham that the days of low pay and cheap labour must end and that companies must invest more on training up workers already available in the country.
