Stronger population controls taken on board ‘immediately’
Saturday 23rd February 2013, 2:45PM GMT.
A HOT-LINE for Islanders to report illegal workers and more inspectors to check building sites, kitchens and shops would be welcome additions to immigration controls, says Assistant Chief Minister Paul Routier.
The Senator, who has political responsibility for migration policy, said that he wanted to see stronger enforcement measures to help control the population.
He spoke in response to a report released this week by the Corporate Services Scrutiny sub-panel, which conducted an in-depth review of the Control of Housing and Work (Jersey) Law.
The law, which is expected to come into force in April, provides measures to control immigration by restricting access to housing and work.
