Lib Dems want immigration rethink so EU workers can return
By Adam Forrest in The Independent
"The chaos and incompetence of this government is now causing food shortages on supermarket shelves," said Alistair Carmichael, the party's home affairs spokesperson.
"Priti Patel needs to admit she got this wrong and change the rules so British businesses can recruit the workers they need."
He added: "The government should scrap its arbitrary salary threshold and end the ludicrous system that rejects carers and other key workers as 'unskilled'. It's time for Tory ministers to put the needs of the British economy above their anti-immigration ideology."
