MOSCOW, October 2 – Novosti. British Prime Minister Liz Truss, in an interview with the Telegraph newspaper , denied claims that she allegedly intended to loosen immigration rules in order to increase the number of low-skilled migrants in the country as part of a plan to stimulate economic growth.
Earlier, the Sunday Times reported that the British government may reform the visa system in order to attract more migrant workers to solve the problem of severe labor shortages. According to the newspaper, the British prime minister intended to raise the limit on attracting seasonal agricultural workers and amend the list of professions with a shortage of workers, which would allow key industries to hire more foreign workers. In addition, it has been suggested that the British authorities may loosen English language requirements in some industries so that more foreign workers can qualify for visas.

“That’s not true,” Truss said.
However, she did not deny the statements that the authorities will increase the number of seasonal agricultural workers and highly qualified specialists.
“It’s not about attracting a lot of low-skilled workers, but about attracting people who will contribute to the economy,” the prime minister said.
