0 Have your say From: Barrie Crowther, Walton, Wakefield. THERE can be no doubt the abundant lack of common sense running through the Home Office is astonishing (The Yorkshire Post, April 30). The way immigration policy has been handled over decades by these civil service employees is nothing short of a disgrace. The Brexit vote demanded more be done to regulate all immigration, illegal or not. To date almost nothing has changed. Where is the policy? Where is the action? Civil servants hiding behind ministers no doubt.From: Susan Dennis, Ripon.DIANE Abbott obviously needs reminding of an interview she did with Nick Ferrari prior to the last election.She was discussing the cost of police recruitment. Her proposed policy was to recruit an additional 10,000 police officers, and she estimated that this would cost £300,000. When challenged over this figure, she increased her estimate to £80m!

Under the measure, the E.P.A. will require that the underlying data for all scientific studies used by the agency to formulate air and water regulations be publicly available. That would sharply limit the number of studies available for consideration because much research relies on confidential health data from study subjects. Scott Pruitt, the E.P.A. administrator, plans to announce the proposed regulation this afternoon at agency headquarters, Supporters and critics alike say the policy will have … [Read more...] about E.P.A. to Unveil a New Rule.
