Announcing Britain's biggest immigration changes in a generation, Prime Minister Theresa May said that the new system "ends freedom of movement once and for all" - a key government promise on Brexit.

The report was based on an immigration policy that had a level playing field for European Union nationals and applicants from other countries, proposals which were accepted by the UK Cabinet last week.

When asked if she was prepared to vote down PM May on a Brexit deal, she said: "We don't want to be in that position".

"It will be a skills-based system where it is workers' skills that matter, not where they come from", she said in a statement. It will be a system that looks across the globe and attracts the people with the skills we need, she said.

Syrian rebels deny pulling weapons out of stronghold
Idlib and adjacent rebel territory are home to some 3 million people, about half of them displaced from other parts of Syria . The NLF controls the rest of Idlib province but is also active in parts of neighbouring Aleppo, Hama and Latakia provinces.

"Crucially it will be fair to ordinary working people".

The proposals follow a crucial government-commissioned report from the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) last month, which had recommended that high-skilled workers must be given priority over visa applications from low-skilled workers.

At customs, e-gates would be available to holidaymakers and business people from so-called low-risk countries - something now only available to European Union citizens. The pre-authorisation system would apply to all travellers, he said.

Interior minister, Sajid Javid, later said Britain will bring in a salary threshold for highly skilled workers' visas as part of its post-Brexit immigration system.

"The ability of people from trading partners to deliver services and student exchange programmes will form part of future trade agreements", she said.

The announcement received a mixed response from businesses with a spokesman for the British Chambers of Commerce saying companies needed to recruit from a pool of people with a wide range of skills.

The Conservative government has a long-standing goal of reducing net immigration below 100,000 people a year, which it has never come close to meeting.

The committee said that if immigration is not part of the negotiations with the EU and the United Kingdom is deciding its future system in isolation there should be no preference given to citizens from the European Economic Area (EEA).
