Tonight at Ten, business leaders voice deep concern

:00:00.:00:00.

at plans to restrict EU migration after Brexit.

:00:07.:00:11.

The plans, still in draft form, would apply to low-skilled EU

:00:12.:00:14.

workers, with firms told to give preference to British people.

:00:15.:00:19.

Overall, immigration has been good for the UK,

:00:20.:00:22.

but what people want to see is control of that immigration.

:00:23.:00:27.

But the response to the leaked Home Office document in the business

:00:28.:00:34.

world has been mainly negative, with warnings of economic damage.

:00:35.:00:36.

Nationally, you know, coastal resorts struggle to recruit.

:00:37.:00:40.

So recruiting from the European market is really important to us.

:00:41.:00:43.

And tonight, further signs of business concern

:00:44.:00:45.

about the government's Brexit approach.

:00:46.:00:47.

One of the most powerful hurricanes ever recorded is destroying houses

:00:48.:00:57.

and flooding islands in the Caribbean.

the violence in their native Myanmar.

:01:05.:01:06.

You can see what a dangerous voyage it has been for them.

:01:07.:01:09.

The boat is listing dangerously on its side.

:01:10.:01:13.

The world's highest-paid actress, Jennifer Lawrence, talks to us

:01:14.:01:16.

about the gender gap in pay that must be tackled.

:01:17.:01:21.

But I think Trevor Brooking's next, well, he is next to me...

:01:22.:01:24.

And the unmistakeable voice of football for half a century,

:01:25.:01:29.

John Motson, decides to call it a day.

:01:30.:01:32.

And coming up in Sportsday on BBC News.

:01:33.:01:35.

All the latest from Flushing Meadows where Karolina Pliskova's reign

:01:36.:01:38.

Business leaders have expressed their deep concern

:01:39.:02:06.

about plans to restrict the number of low-skilled workers who come

:02:07.:02:08.

The plans are included in a leaked Home Office document,

:02:09.:02:13.

which also urges employers to give preference to British

:02:14.:02:15.

The hospitality industry said today it relied on EU workers

:02:16.:02:21.

and warned the plans would be "catastrophic" if implemented.

:02:22.:02:26.

But the Prime Minister told MPs the government was committed

:02:27.:02:29.

Our political editor Laura Kuenssberg reports.

:02:30.:02:36.

There in black and white, a plan for immigration

:02:37.:02:39.

Leaked ideas to answer the demand the Prime Minister believes millions

:02:40.:02:45.

Prime Minister, is your immigration policy going to hurt the economy?

:02:46.:02:52.

A draft of a tighter system of control that

:02:53.:02:55.

Overall immigration has been good for the UK,

:02:56.:02:59.

but what people want to see is control of that immigration.

:03:00.:03:04.

That is, I think, what people want to see as a result of coming

:03:05.:03:07.

We are already able to exercise controls in relation to those

:03:08.:03:14.

who come to this country from outside the countries

:03:15.:03:17.

within the European Union and we continue to believe

:03:18.:03:20.

as a government that it is important to have net migration

:03:21.:03:23.

The document from August says freedom of movement,

:03:24.:03:29.

where unlimited EU citizens can come here, will end when we leave.

:03:30.:03:32.

New arrivals after 2019 would have to register to stay long-term.

:03:33.:03:40.

There will be tighter rules for lower-skilled workers

:03:41.:03:43.

to prioritise British employees, perhaps even with a cap on numbers.

:03:44.:03:46.

And for EU citizens who do come to the UK, it will be harder

:03:47.:03:49.

This Birmingham food factory is already losing one Italian chef

:03:50.:04:00.

who is worried about Brexit, and boss Rosie is concerned

:04:01.:04:04.

it will make it harder to attract new arrivals,

:04:05.:04:06.

It will definitely hinder our job as an employer but actually,

:04:07.:04:11.

So we do have chefs from all over the world.

:04:12.:04:17.

It will impact our ability to recruit people.

:04:18.:04:21.

Officially, Labour is rather silent on the leak, not

:04:22.:04:25.

But prominent voices fear cutting off low skilled immigration

:04:26.:04:30.

The idea that we stop EU citizens coming here,

:04:31.:04:36.

the lower-skilled ones who are important for hospitality,

:04:37.:04:39.

construction and social care, will somehow lead to us being more

:04:40.:04:42.

That's why I'm hoping this leak isn't genuine government

:04:43.:04:46.

policy and if it is, we are hoping the

:04:47.:04:48.

Is it not time we took back control of our immigration policy?

:04:49.:04:52.

But the government won't budge on its view the referendum

:04:53.:04:56.

was an instruction from the public to control immigration.

:04:57.:05:00.

Well, one minister admitted it won't be an easy job and says

:05:01.:05:07.

since this draft was put together only last month, there have been six

:05:08.:05:10.

more versions of the plan, with not just the Home Office,

:05:11.:05:13.

but the Treasury, the Brexit department and Number Ten

:05:14.:05:15.

And don't forget, whatever they decide here, they have

:05:16.:05:20.

First signs from EU members don't bode well.

:05:21.:05:28.

For us, it would go in the wrong direction and won't help at all,

:05:29.:05:35.

neither the current negotiation nor the future negotiations.

:05:36.:05:39.

Leaving the EU is not just about obscure negotiations

:05:40.:05:44.

in the back rooms of Brussels but government departments right

:05:45.:05:47.

now, engaged in rewriting the country's rules.

:05:48.:05:50.

Laura Kuenssberg, BBC News, Westminster.

:05:51.:05:54.

So what effect could the plans have on the UK economy,

:05:55.:05:57.

and on sectors such as health, social care and hospitality,

:05:58.:06:00.

if far fewer low-skilled workers are allowed to come

:06:01.:06:02.

Our home editor Mark Easton has been investigating.

:06:03.:06:10.

For many, Brexit was about restricting EU immigration.

:06:11.:06:15.

Here in Clacton, for example, there's support for an immigration

:06:16.:06:18.

policy that deters low-skilled European workers from coming

:06:19.:06:21.

to the UK unless it can be shown they make British people richer.

:06:22.:06:25.

Britain should come first because it's broken

:06:26.:06:26.

They shouldn't just come here and get jobs straightaway.

:06:27.:06:30.

Brexit means the same rules we currently use for non-EU migrants

:06:31.:06:36.

can be applied to those from the EU, for instance, discouraging

:06:37.:06:38.

The Home Office document proposes low-skilled EU workers be limited

:06:39.:06:48.

to staying a maximum of two years, that they meet a specific salary

:06:49.:06:51.

threshold, with a cap on overall numbers.

:06:52.:06:54.

For non-EU, it means a job paying less than ?30,000 a year.

:06:55.:06:59.

So many care workers, for example, teachers,

:07:00.:07:02.

builders and nurses are barred unless their occupation

:07:03.:07:05.

This afternoon, nurses were demonstrating outside

:07:06.:07:12.

Parliament, demanding better pay but also warning the NHS in England

:07:13.:07:16.

One of the difficulties is, because of the low pay of nurses,

:07:17.:07:24.

they don't fall into the category of the skilled workforce

:07:25.:07:29.

we want to bring in so we've always been dependent on nursing

:07:30.:07:32.

being on a shortage list, which we would obviously

:07:33.:07:34.

encourage that demand, that it stays on the shortage list.

:07:35.:07:36.

Inside the Houses of Parliament, MPs were today discussing how lower

:07:37.:07:39.

immigration might hit key services like social care.

:07:40.:07:43.

But those in favour of tougher controls say even though the UK

:07:44.:07:47.

is close to full employment, the country should do more to fill

:07:48.:07:50.

What we want to do is encourage employers to train local people,

:07:51.:08:00.

actually, to make more of an effort to look ahead and prepare

:08:01.:08:05.

for the time when there won't be all these people coming

:08:06.:08:10.

in with ready-made skills, prepared to work for lower wages.

:08:11.:08:14.

Today's policy proposals also envisage tighter controls on family

:08:15.:08:18.

members an EU worker can bring with them, a minimum income

:08:19.:08:21.

But official government advisers have said post Brexit,

:08:22.:08:27.

low immigration would cost Britain ?113 million a week by 2021.

:08:28.:08:33.

Employers including the creative industries, construction,

:08:34.:08:39.

agriculture and the hospitality industry have been warning of dire

:08:40.:08:42.

Recruiting from the European market is really important to us and it

:08:43.:08:49.

adds another skill base to our workforce and that skill

:08:50.:08:51.

base is often something we just can't get locally.

:08:52.:08:54.

Today's policy proposal document may well enjoy public support but it

:08:55.:08:57.

also highlights the swings and roundabouts of the journey

:08:58.:08:59.

So on the day that business leaders voiced their disquiet about aspects

:09:00.:09:10.

of the government's Brexit planning, let's talk to our business

:09:11.:09:13.

This is all coming at a time when ministers are trying to get business

:09:14.:09:23.

on board. Yes, get them back on board after a slightly frosty

:09:24.:09:26.

relationship during the election and these proposals did not go down well

:09:27.:09:29.

and they come precisely at a time when the government is trying to

:09:30.:09:33.

demonstrate business supports their approach to Brexit, but in fact,

:09:34.:09:36.

they've been circulating a letter to some of the UK's biggest companies,

:09:37.:09:40.

they want them to sign a letter, saying the leaders of some of the

:09:41.:09:51.

UK's most dynamic businesses, even though some of them supported Gabi

:09:52.:09:54.

Maine and some supported Leave, but 15 months later, we share an

:09:55.:09:56.

understanding Brexit is happening and believe this is a good time for

:09:57.:09:59.

the government and employers to work together and we look forward to the

:10:00.:10:01.

government negotiating an interim period, basically asking business do

:10:02.:10:03.

endorse the government's general approach. I've spoken to several

:10:04.:10:07.

business leaders today and white -- while they understand and want to

:10:08.:10:10.

work closely with government, they feel uncomfortable about endorsing

:10:11.:10:13.

an approach to Brexit that many of them think lacks clarity. One said

:10:14.:10:18.

they would not sign this letter in a million years. As you say, that is a

:10:19.:10:22.

setback for government that was trying to rehabilitate its

:10:23.:10:26.

relationship with business. I can tell you the CBI, the employers

:10:27.:10:29.

group, is trying to circulate a letter of its own and will probably

:10:30.:10:34.

have more success with getting signatories so business won't be

:10:35.:10:37.

told about what it is about the government policy they support, they

:10:38.:10:40.

want to tell the government for themselves. Thank you for joining

Hurricane Irma. She is expected to brush the northern half of the

island with 185 mph winds. I have to tell you, we have picked a sheltered

:11:27.:11:31.

place to broadcast from but outside here, the wind is already gusting up

:11:32.:11:37.

to 120 mph. There is debris flying through the air. There are no

:11:38.:11:41.

flights in and out of the island and people are sheltering and have been

:11:42.:11:45.

told to stay indoors. Hurricane Irma has already travelled across the

eastern Caribbean, causing major devastation and two people have lost

:11:51.:11:52.

their lives which has made people here fearful of what could be to

:12:09.:12:12.

firstly, to say a few words to express our profound compassion

:12:13.:12:21.

and solidarity to our fellow citizens who today were affected

:12:22.:12:25.

by Hurricane Irma on St Martin These pilots flew into the eye

:12:26.:12:29.

of the storm, a unique view of the sheer scale of this hurricane

:12:30.:12:35.

and, at its core, are those catastrophic 185 mile an hour winds,

:12:36.:12:41.

and that is what they fear The aim is to try to save

:12:42.:12:44.

as much as possible. Neighbours are handing out wood

boarding and supplies. This shop owner describes

:12:50.:12:52.

them as "angels." You know, we've been

:12:53.:12:55.

through this before, so... You know, it's a lot

:12:56.:13:00.

of emotions going on, you know. The governor has been inspecting one

:13:01.:13:04.

of the shelters set up for the thousands who are expected

:13:05.:13:07.

to evacuate low-lying areas. We are hopeful that it'll skid off

:13:08.:13:10.

somewhere north-east of Puerto Rico, but we're prepared

:13:11.:13:16.

for the worst as well. We can't leave anything to chance,

:13:17.:13:19.

and our priority right now is to make sure that the people

:13:20.:13:24.

of Puerto Rico are safe. These families hope

:13:25.:13:26.

they will be safe here. The full force of Hurricane Irma

:13:27.:13:28.

is still several hours away and already you can see

:13:29.:13:31.

and feel its effect. The preparations have been made over

:13:32.:13:35.

the last few days and the governor says that could be the difference

:13:36.:13:38.

between lives lost and lives saved. In Florida they're taking no

including the fact that there's a new and, seems to be,

:13:59.:14:03.

record-breaking hurricane heading right toward Florida

:14:04.:14:07.

and Puerto Rico, and other places. We'll know in a very

:14:08.:14:10.

short period of time, but it looks like it could be

:14:11.:14:13.

something that will be not good. Hurricane Irma has proved to be

:14:14.:14:16.

a terrifying, unstoppable force. All those in her path can do

:14:17.:14:22.

is hunker down and hope. So for the latest on the path

:14:23.:14:25.

of Hurricane Irma and where it's heading, we're joined by Nick Miller

of the BBC Weather Centre. Huw, this hurricane season

:14:35.:14:40.

is turning the astonishing First, Hurricane Harvey's record

and devastating rain and now This is breathtaking -

a view taken from space today of the eye of Hurricane Irma passing

:14:47.:14:53.

directly over Barbuda. That means the island went

:14:54.:14:56.

from catastrophic winds to almost dead calm in the eye,

:14:57.:14:59.

then back to catastrophic Amazing to think about but remember,

:15:00.:15:01.

there are people who lived this. From Barbuda, Irma is now

:15:02.:15:08.

battering the Virgin Islands, then quickly on to Puerto Rico,

:15:09.:15:13.

the Dominican Republic tomorrow After that, the current forecast

:15:14.:15:16.

takes it close to Cuba on Friday and then Florida at the weekend,

:15:17.:15:21.

but exactly where in Florida But importantly, by the weekend,

:15:22.:15:24.

Irma is still forecast to be a major That is why the necessary

:15:25.:15:40.

preparations are already underway in Florida.

:15:41.:15:43.

If it does hit Florida, it will the first time

:15:44.:15:46.

in the same season that two at least Category 4 hurricanes have made

:15:47.:15:49.

Another reason this hurricane season is cementing its place in the record

in 1972 at Hereford versus Newcastle when he conveyed the emotion of one

of the FA Cup's greatest shocks. When I see Ronnie Radford,
