At the Conservative conference last year I called for fair rules to limit benefit, healthcare and legal aid services to people recently arrived in the UK and those coming as visitors, in line with some other EU countries and the USA. (This website October 12th posting; Mailonline 8th October) Today the government has confirmed that it is working on proposals to introduce sensible rules to do just that.
This work was underway before last Thursday, so please spare me the contrbutions saying this has only happened thanks to the voters of Eastleigh!
