BBC News – UK takeaway jobs ban for immigrants from outside EEA
Migrants from outside the European Economic Area will no longer be allowed to work in the UK as chefs in takeaway restaurants, the government has said.
The ruling comes after the Migration Advisory Committee (Mac) was asked to review the country’s skill shortages.
A similar ban will apply to workers such as hairdressers, beauty salon managers and estate agents from April.
The number of skilled migrants not from the European Economic Area is being capped annually at 21,700.
