'Nasty' UK - by George Osborne's father-in-law: Visa rules make Britain look bad, he says

The former Cabinet minister Lord Howell of Guildford warned that business people were being deterring from travelling to the UK by the "jungle of regulations" they encountered. Students were almost in "despair" at the restrictions being imposed on them, he added.

"All our witnesses who came before us . . . said the visa policy and some of the handling of immigration policy was creating rather a blot, creating a nasty Britain feeling."
