The idea from UK home affairs minister Amber Rudd that UK companies will have to provide lists of foreign workers they employ will increase intolerance and xenophobia.
S&D Group president Gianni Pittella said:
 
“This is a small-minded, bigoted move designed to pander to xenophobes. All it will do is create more divisions in society and will not improve the lives of UK citizens in any way.  Our message to the Tory government is clear – be careful what you wish for. If you continue to demonise foreign workers and let the pound devalue, these people will leave. This policy goes directly against Britain’s history as a place of openness and tolerance, and would be economically disastrous for the UK.”
