UK Refuses to Change Immigration Policy for Free Trade Deal with India

The Prime Minister’s spokesperson of Britain (UK), Rishi Sunak, announced on Thursday (September 8th) that the UK immigration policy will remain the same, despite the growing prospect of achieving a free trade agreement with India. The spokesperson stated that the Prime Minister believes the current immigration levels are too high. He also emphasized the fact that there are no plans to change the immigration policy, including student visas, to reach an agreement on the trade.

Reuters reported that the optimism around the free trade deal between India and the UK is increasing. The two countries have agreed on the broad contours of the pact, leading to the possibility of completing the deal by the end of 2021.

Meanwhile, news from around the world is rapidly changing. In India, the by-elections across 6 states are currently in its counting phase. In science, astronomers captured a dramatic event of a star being “repeatedly shredded and consumed” by a black hole. On the entertainment front, Danny Masterson was sentenced to 30 years to life imprisonment for rapes. Toront Film Festival kicked off its 48th edition with the movie, The Boy and the Heron. Fujianvenator, a “bizarre” long-legged bird-like dinosaur was discovered in China.

Though the free trade deal between India and the UK is a major talking point, it does not seem like the UK will be changing its immigration policy anytime soon to reach an agreement. Even if the free trade pact is completed before 2021 ends, the UK will not be making any amendments to its current immigration policy
