The Queen approved the appointment of Caroline Nokes MP as Minister of State for Immigration at the Home Office yesterday.
The new Immigration Minister will be tasked with the responsibility of forthcoming Immigration Bill and separate White Paper, the work on settled status for EU citizens and the implementation of new hostile environment measures.
Responding to her appointment, Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said:
‘I am honoured to join the Home Office and excited about gripping the challenges ahead in this crucial period as we prepare to leave the European Union. As Immigration Minister, I am fully committed to ensuring the UK’s borders remain secure and developing an immigration system that works in the national interest, while continuing to attract those who benefit the country. I will also build on the positive work this government has already delivered, resettling thousands of the most vulnerable refugees fleeing the Syrian conflict.’
We wish her all the best in her new role.
