Clegg plan to end migration 'abuse'

Nick Clegg has called for a crackdown on abuse of the visa system, with some visitors to the UK being asked to pay a deposit when they arrive.

The deputy prime minister said migrants made a huge contribution but there must be "zero tolerance" of abuses.

It came as Mr Clegg's Liberal Democrat colleague, Vince Cable, disowned a target of reducing net migration to below 100,000 by 2015, saying it was a Conservative policy, not a coalition one.
