HC Deb 25 July 1986 vol 102 c599W
Mr. Adley

asked the Paymaster General if he will make a statement about the criteria he uses when deciding whether to allow work permits to foreign citizens involved in the management of United Kingdom-based companies.

Mr. Lang

For approval under the work permit scheme the employer must demonstrate that an overseas worker is suitably qualified for a specific management post and that there is a genuine need for his or her services.
