On Tuesday Britain cut more categories in the 'shortage occupation list' under which professionals from India and other non-EU countries could come here for work, leading to an expected drop of 40,000 non-EU workers entering the country every year. 

The David Cameron government has accepted the recommendation of the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to specialist jobs such as pharmacists, veterinary surgeons, and speech and language therapists. 

Occupations that the MAC recommended be removed from the list include secondary education biology teachers; speech and language therapists; pharmacists ; orthoptists; veterinary surgeons; and, rank and file orchestral musicians . Added to the list are actuaries; high integrity pipe welders.
