10:03 pm
have a system that allows us to control immigration and that gives us flexibility. we can open up our market. we will keep everything under review but what we don't want to do is go back to the situation in which we basically allowed the road haulage industry to be sustained with a lot of low—wage immigration that meant that wages didn't go out and facilities standards, the quality of the job didn't go up so the weird thing is now that people don't want to go in to the road haulage industry. they don't want to be lorry drivers precisely because we had that mass immigration approach and held wages down and held the quality of the job down so we want to see an improvement. we want to see investments in facilities and what we are now starting to see is for the first
10:04 pm
time in over a decade you've seen wages going up and that is what we mean. wages going up fasterfor those on the lower incomes and that is what we mean by levelling up. that leads me and my next question because you are helping with hgv drivers and poultry workers but there are other industries that are complaining. is the answer then that is a high paid rather the more immigration? the is a high paid rather the more immigration?— is a high paid rather the more immigration? the answer is for caettin immigration? the answer is for getting intelligent _ immigration? the answer is for getting intelligent people - immigration? the answer is for getting intelligent people in - immigration? the answer is for l getting intelligent people in from abroad is always a great thing. i have always been in favour of allowing people want to make their lives here and work hard, i am a descendant of immigrants and many, many people are. great. but i also want to see standards ofjobs going up want to see standards ofjobs going up around the country and pay going up up around the country and pay going up around the country and pay going up around the country and pay going up around the country and investment in people. and also in capital and
10:05 pm

10:07 pm
we have seen for by the wayside. selling off the estate meaning that they are very heavily in debt with nothing to fall back on when they hit hard times so i would hope that the wisdom will and they will keep the wisdom will and they will keep the assets within the business. the abortion rights battle in america is taken to the streets today with protest being held in all 50 states and the capital, washington, dc. thousands of women's rights advocates are joining 660 thousands of women's rights advocates arejoining 660 marchers to protest against recent efforts by states to severely restrict access to terminations including the new law in texas that bans abortions after six weeks. the us supreme court is more likely to take action to overturn the national right to abortion providers in the landmark roe v wade ruling of 1973. europe is that first mission to mercury has

10:22 pm
conference on friday. this is our future and we have to fight for our futures. inside the conference today, a mood of quiet formality, as negotiators brought this meeting to a close. what's been discussed though could hardly be more urgent. the fires, the floods, the melting of the ice and the rising of the sea... the overall message from leaders here is one of cautious optimism, that it will be possible to reach a decisive climate agreement in glasgow, but that it won't be easy. glasgow is the starting point. people who are here in milan representing some of the most vulnerable and small island nations are really concerned that we are still a long way from the trajectory of keeping global temperature increase this century to within this key threshold of 1.5 celsius. we are already in a 1.1 world. we are facing increasing frequency and severity of storms and flooding. a 1.5 world is very scary to think about, especially for islands like us,
10:23 pm
and what's even scarier is that we are still not there, in terms of ambition, in terms of cutting down emissions. this vast coal mine in india, a country that still depends heavily on coal for energy, is just a glimpse of what a challenge it is to slash carbon emissions. but leaders here agree that meeting that challenge is now urgent. by 2030, we need to reduce emissions globally by 45%, but what we need is everyone to come forward and if there is a gap we are going to have to set out how we will close this gap in this decisive decade. the true test, bringing the politics in line with the science, will be at the critical un climate conference in just one month's time. victoria gill, bbc news, milan. abortion rights advocates have been holding demonstrations across america. they are opposed to a new role in texas that limits access to abortions within the state. their
