Temporary cap on immigration quashed in court

The Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants has won a Judicial Review against the temporary cap on the Points Based System introduced by the government in November. The High Court ruled that the cap was introduced unlawfully because it had side-stepped Parliament scrutiny.

Home Secretary Theresa May introduced the cap this summer as an interim measure ahead of a permanent cap. The cap is therefore not in force at present, although it is likely that government will introduce new measures when Parliament reopens in January.
