Put that the Prime Minister had signalled a rethink on the immigration cap during his speech this morning, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that it was not a rethink; the current position was that we had a temporary cap that ran until next spring and we were consulting on a cap for future years. We would be looking at the level of that cap, and wanted to make sure that it allowed businesses to bring the people they needed into the UK.

Put that there had been representations from businesses on this, the PMS said that we all knew businesses had been talking about this issue, which was why we wanted to have this period of consultation to make sure we got the policy right.
