This morning a government minister said they were seriously considering imposing a £1,000-a-year levy on EU worker hired by British companies.
The Guardian reported:
Home Office minister Robert Goodwill told peers that the “immigration skills levy” could be introduced for EU migrants and would “be helpful to British workers who feel they are overlooked” in favour of migrants.
Later that day during PMQs, the Prime Minister taunted Jeremy Corbyn over his Brexit proposals, saying he kept changing his mind.
Still later that day, a spokesperson from Downing Street bins the idea of a levy after widespread criticism:
It’s not on the Government’s agenda.
Exactly who is having trouble sticking to a line?
