"Our new immigration system will turn off the tap of cheap, foreign low skilled labour," interior minister Priti Patel wrote in The Sun newspaper today.

"From next year, all skilled workers will need to earn enough points to work in the UK. They will need to speak English, have a firm job offer, and meet the salary requirements."

Patel said "overall numbers" would fall under the plan.
