Following the resignation of Immigration Minister Mark Harper, Home Secretary Theresa May said:
Mark has been an excellent minister and he can be proud of the role he has played in sharply reducing immigration to Britain.
He has been a first-rate colleague and his decision reflects his loyal commitment to the Conservative Party, the Government and the Prime Minister.
I am extremely sorry to lose him from the Home Office but I am confident that he will be able to bring his considerable talents to government as a minister again in future.
