We continue to monitor the operation of Tier 2, our main immigration route for non-EEA workers, to ensure that it strikes the right balance between supporting businesses access the talent from overseas with our commitment to reducing net migration and protecting the domestic labour market.

The Home Office receives a high volume of representations on a variety of subjects relating to immigration on a daily basis. It is not possible to provide a running count of the number of representations on a particular topic.
