Edinburgh MP Christine Jardine has vowed to carry on fighting for foreign nationals working in the NHS to have the right to stay in this country, despite her private member's bill on the issue being delayed.
She said: “A backlog of private member's bills is building up and a lot of them will fall if they are not heard by May.
"But if my bill falls, i will reintroduce it. I’m not giving up. But in the meantime I’m going to try and persuade the government it would be a good thing for them to do. I think it's something which has a huge amount of public interest and support.”
