That this House supports most elements of the Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules HC 1888, a copy of which was laid before this House on 15 March 2012, for instance the provisions that close the Tier 1 (Post-Study Work) category and introduce the Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) category and that amend the settlement regime; expects that the annual limits for 2012-13 and 2013-14 for Tier 1 of the Points-Based System will not make any appreciable difference to the Government's declared net migration targets, but is concerned that the proposed changes to the categories for overseas domestic workers in private households as they affect diplomats and others may lead to an increase in illegal trafficking and virtual domestic slavery; and therefore calls on the Government to allow a debate on the Statement of Changes as soon as possible.
