The immigration measures in the Queen's Speech don't tackle important issues on exploitation and illegal immigration.
We support many of the measures promised, though of course we will scrutinise the detail, but it appears their impact will be limited.
The Government is still not tackling the exploitation of foreign workers, leading to the undercutting of local workers.
There is nothing to improve enforcement of the national minimum wage, no action on agencies recruiting only from abroad, nothing to improve training for local workers for sectors recruiting heavily from abroad, no action to extend the gangmasters licensing legislation, and nothing to deal with slum landlords using overcrowded housing to recoup labour costs.
Nigel Farage said the focus on immigration and aspiration in the Queen's Speech showed that UKIP is "changing the UK national debate."
The Government has put new attempts to curb immigration at the heart of its agenda for the coming year, set out in today's Queen's Speech.
'Progress Please' probably best sums up business groups' polite but rather firm response to the Queen's speech.
