Filipino nurses who who moved to Cambridge to help ease their staffing shortages are now facing deportation. The Home Office has refused to renew the work permits.

The decision comes after senior carers were taken off the national shortage jobs list. Most of these nurses have lived in Cambridge for many years and city MP David Howarth has now taken up their case.

Mr Howarth said: "These are qualified and hardworking nurses who came to this country at our request and they are now simply being discarded. This is not the way to treat people doing a very important and difficult job."

Home Office officials have also announced they will no longer issue work permits to foreign nationals for senior carer positions.

A Home Office spokesman said: "We treat each work permit renewal on a case-by-case basis and cannot comment on individual cases. The shortage list is made up of roles where professionals within the industries involved have told us there is a chronic shortage of applicants."

Mr Howard's letter to Mr Byrne said: "This policy seems unfair and ill-judged and I hope your department will reconsider it. This decision will lead to a shortage of carers.

"I hope the Home Office will reassess whether this role should be again included on the shortage list to allow these vacancies to be filled by overseas staff."
