The Government is finally reversing their proposal

This is the document that appeared last night in the Telegraph which begins with the statement from Therese Coffey who is currently the deputy Prime Minister.

‘I don’t mind if they are coming from abroad’ as she battles to deal with long waiting lists. As a front-line politician, few experiences can be as frightening as beginning to lose the ability to form words. “It was quite an odd week,”
