"U.K. Home Secretary Amber Rudd defended a series of policy proposals aimed at cutting the number of foreign workers at British companies after she was accused of stoking racism and anti-immigrant sentiment. Under the plans announced at the Conservative Party conference, companies would have to list the non-U.K. nationals who work for them. Banks and landlords would also face sanctions if they fail to make checks on foreigners doing business with them. ... Lawmakers for the opposition Labour Party joined business leaders in criticizing Rudd over the plans, which she said are part of a review aimed at helping companies train local staff to reduce the dependence on workers from outside Britain."
