Cameron has faced heavy criticism for his increasing focus on curbing immigration in response to Ukip’s growing popularity. According to the Sunday Times, the Prime Minister is planning to cap the number of national insurance numbers issued to unskilled EU migrants. But does the UK really need “regain control of our borders”, as suggested by Ukip? Immigration levels to the UK are high – but according to the most recent data available from Eurostat, it was only slightly above average in 2012. Almost eight people in every 1,000 in the UK had immigrated that year – a total of 496,000 people. Compared with the EU average of 3.4 immigrants per 1,000 people, that is quite high: a bigger rate than other major EU economies such as Germany (7.4), France (5.0) and Spain (6.5). However, there were over 10 countries in the EU with a higher number of immigrants per 1,000 people in 2012: But to gain a clearer picture of migration levels, and what they mean for the UK economy, it’s important to look at net immigration. How high is the UK’s net migration? Net migration or immigration is the result of the number of people leaving the country less the number of people coming in. Let’s use the UK as an example: ONS figures estimate that during 2013, 530,000 people immigrated to the UK and 317,000 left (both on a long-term basis). This means the UK has net immigration: the population is 212,000 greater because of immigration. The figures are rounded, which is why they don’t seem to add up. As the map below shows, some countries, such as Spain, are suffering net migration: more people are leaving than migrating to the country. In Spain’s case this is because of a lack of job opportunities. It’s bad for the Spanish economy because it means educated youngsters are moving abroad to pay taxes in foreign countries and wasting the money Spain invested in their education. The UK is also a big exporter of ex-pats, meaning net immigration is relatively low. In the UK, according to Eurostat, 3.1 people (net) enter the country for every 1,000 people living here. That is below the EU average of 3.3, below the Eurozone average of 4.3 and below Germany’s rate of 5.8 persons. Prosperous Nordic nations Sweden (6.9) and Norway (7.9) have higher rates too. France has a low rate (0.6 people per 1,000 members of the population) despite having high gross immigration. Spain has net migration – 5.5 people left in 2013 per 1,000. All data in the map is from Eurostat, correct for 2013. Some rates are based on preliminary results or estimates. Here are the 10 countries with the highest net immigration: And the 10 with the highest net migration: It may be argued that people moving abroad are often of retirement age and so are unlikely to be freeing up jobs as a direct result of their departures. Furthermore, ex-pats still receive state pensions and often winter fuel allowance but are spending that money in a foreign economy. In the financial year 2012 -2013 for example, the government spent a total of £79.8bn on state pension payments, £2.2bn (in nominal terms) of which went to persons living overseas. £531m of that went to people living in Spain and £495m to people in Australia. In 2011 -2012 £1.7bn was spent on winter fuel payments to Brits living abroad (this data isn’t broken down by country, but we can surmise from the pension data that a large proportion of ex-pats live in warmer climates). Immigrants help the economy Immigration is seen by many economists to be a positive: people coming from overseas tend to be better educated and younger, meaning they contribute more in taxes than they take out in benefits – 35 per cent more according to a study seen by The Economist. Christian Dustmann and Tommaso Frattini, of the Centre for Research and Analysis of Migration, found European immigrants paid a staggering £2,610 more in taxes than they received in benefits each year between 2007 and 2011. Surveys of business leaders have indicated EU workers tend to have skills and commitment that make them attractive to employers and good for the economy. The data also supports foreign workers as contributing to the economy. According to data from the department of work and pensions:As at February 2014, approximately 15 per cent of working age UK nationals were claiming a DWP working age benefit compared to 7 per cent of working age non-UK nationals (at the time they first registered for a National Insurance number [NINo]). It goes on to say:134,000 (11.7 per cent) of Jobseekers Allowance claimants are estimated to have been non-UK nationals when they first registered for a NINo. Of these, 48 per cent are from within the European Union. That 11.7 per cent figure may sound high, but 15.6 per cent of the UK working age population is made up of non-UK nationals, so that’s proportionately better. Here is a visualisation using data from the ONS showing net immigration. The uptick at the end partly comes because restrictions on Romanians and Bulgarians coming to the UK were lifted in January. Their contribution (28,000 in the year to March 2014, up from 12,000 the year before) to the total was labelled “statistically significant” by the ONS. And it’s worth noting that immigration has been this high before.

Musk added that the product would diverge from Tesla’s main business of designing, manufacturing and selling electric cars. Shares jumped to around $190 per share following the cryptic tweet – roughly three per cent up on the opening price of $185.85 per share. Despite the fact that “not a car” is all investors know for sure about Tesla’s new product line, the spike in stock signals a confidence in the South African-born entrepreneur whose ambitious projects have also included space transport company SpaceX (of which he is currently chief executive) and PayPal, which he co-founded with Peter Thiel and others.

By Mike Wackett 29/01/2018 Ocean Network Express (ONE) has published details of its Day ONE network of services outside those offered on east-west routes via membership of THE Alliance.ONE said that from 1 April, more than 200 container vessels would be deployed on the regional trades of intra-Asia, Latin America, Oceania and Africam connecting more than 200 ports.The Loadstar understands that the number of ships previously deployed separately by K Line, MOL and NYK on these tradelanes has been significantly reduced by the merger.And the Japanese carriers are preparing to start taking bookings this week under the ONE bill of lading for vessel departures in April. On Thursday the booking sector of the ONE website will go live, enabling bookings to be made for ONE voyages.ONE explained that the transition of bookings from the current ‘legacy 3J lines’ to the new entity would not take place globally on a single date, but rather on a voyage-by-voyage basis, “dependent upon specific origin”.However, it added, after 19 April all bookings would be via the ONE office network.In a progress update, ONE said all management level appointments were complete and the “process of selection and transition of manpower is progressing well”.It added that it would be boosting its “customer-facing resource” this month, “enabling us to increasingly provide a definitive answer to customer questions concerning points of contact”.Indeed, some forwarders The Loadstar has spoken to this month have remarked on a need for clarity on their commercial contact points.There are also many operational procedures that the three lines must determine, fine-tune and migrate to ONE, including port agency systems and, not least, VGM submissions.One operational contact told The Loadstar in Felixstowe last week that a consequence of the merger was that the new organisation itself must decide on “who to hire and who to fire”, whereas the Japanese lines individually were represented by three port agency firms.Although the staff at K Line, MOL and NYK know each other well, they are hugely proud of their own organisations and it will be a challenging few months for the ONE management to blend the selected staff into the new set-up.A merger or takeover of shipping lines is a massive administrational task, but merging three container lines into one is unchartered water for the industry. Container lines know what their competitors are carrying and who their customers are, and rivals of the Japanese lines will be circling to take advantage of any weakness in the transition to ONE.

Protecting jobseekers from bait advertising Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development The Honourable Di FarmerThe Palaszczuk Government will introduce tough new measures to protect job seekers from scammers tricking them into training programs. Minister for Training and Skills Development Di Farmer said the additional safeguards follow an independent review into ‘bait advertising’ by the Queensland Training Ombudsman. “Someone who is looking for a job shouldn’t have to worry about being scammed by a dodgy training provider,” Ms Farmer said. “This is all about cracking down on those doing the wrong thing so people can feel confident that when they apply for a job that the position exists. “The government has accepted five of the report’s recommendations in full and accepted a sixth recommendation in principle. “We’ll communicate better with apprentices, trainees, students, employers and training providers, review penalties for non-compliance and act quickly to prevent people being misled. “We will also support a new Queensland VET Quality Forum, with representatives from the Australian Skills Quality Authority, Office of Fair Trading, Office of Industrial Relations, Department of Employment, Small Business and Training, and the Queensland Training Ombudsman. “The forum’s first task will be to improve the way student complaints are handled between the regulatory bodies. “The government called for the investigation in August and welcomes and supports its findings. “The vast majority of training providers do the right thing – but we have a message for those who don’t – we won’t tolerate any organisation making false and misleading claims. “While the Ombudsman’s review did not find any evidence of breaches of legislation by Queensland recruitment companies or training providers, investigations are ongoing, and we want to ensure we have the strongest deterrents in place. “We upgraded compliance monitoring in July 2020 with the introduction of the Skills Assure initiative for registered training organisations. “We have introduced additional criteria for new training provider applications and strengthened compliance measures to ensure government funding goes to quality training providers. “We’ve invested more than $1 billion in training in 2020-21 and we want our investment to create jobs and give Queenslanders more opportunities for employment.“ The independent review was part of a plan initiated by the State Government this year that also included a dedicated Training Scammer hotline to report unscrupulous operators.

Union welcomes NSW Government intervention at Wingecarribee Shire Council United Services UnionA move by the NSW Government to appoint an independent administrator at Wingecarribee Shire Council for three months to address serious issues, including allegations of harassment and bullying of staff, has been welcomed by the local government union.The United Services Union said the formal notice of intention to suspend the Mayor and Councillors, issued on Wednesday afternoon by NSW Local Government Minister Shelley Hancock, is a positive step to address serious issues at the council and deliver better outcomes for staff and ratepayers.The council now has seven days to respond to the notice before a final determination is made on the suspension of the Mayor and Councillors, and their replacement with an independent administrator.USU organiser Rudi Oppitz said the union welcomed the Local Government Minister’s intervention.“The union welcomes the Local Government Minister Shelley Hancock’s formal notice of her intention to suspend the Mayor and Councillors of Wingecarribee Shire and appoint an administrator to the council,” Mr Oppitz said.“Like the Local Government Minister, the union has been made aware of allegations of harassment and bullying of staff, which are having a significant effect on the wellbeing of staff and the operations of the council.“As we understand, these allegations are a central consideration in the Minister’s intervention, and we encourage Ms Hancock to press ahead with this action in the best interest of the staff and ratepayers of Wingecarribee Shire.“We are aware that ratepayers have been calling for the NSW Government to step in and allow their voices to be heard.“We hope the actions of the Minister will provide a vehicle for both ratepayers and our members at council to get to the bottom of what has been occurring.“We are pleased the Minister is taking action on these serious allegations in an effort to deliver a better future for the residents and workers of Wingecarribee Shire.” /Public Release.
