Under a Labour government, employers who violate employment laws, such as failing to pay the minimum wage, would be prohibited from hiring foreign workers. The policy aims to curb exploitative practices and prioritise the employment of UK residents.

In addition, Labour plans to legislate to link the immigration system to domestic training programs. This would require businesses applying for foreign worker visas to demonstrate efforts to train British workers to fill those roles.

In contrast, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has unveiled his first major health proposal of the election campaign, focusing on expanding community care services.

Sunak promised the construction of 100 new GP surgeries and 50 community diagnostic centres, funded by reducing the number of NHS managers. The Conservative Party also plans to extend the Pharmacy First scheme, enabling patients to access certain treatments directly from pharmacies without needing a GP appointment.

“These proposals will make it quicker, easier, and more convenient for patients to receive the care they need while alleviating pressure on hospital services,” Sunak stated.

As the general election approaches, both parties are setting out their visions for key national issues, with Labour targeting migration reform and the Conservatives focusing on healthcare improvements.
