Restricted Certificate of Sponsorship requests exceed 4,000 in April, against a quota of 2,200 – is it time to reconsider the 20,700 cap?

Data obtained from a freedom of information request shows that in April 2018 a total of 4,325 restricted CoS requests were made, against a quota of only 2,200. Therefore in April’s round of requests more than 2,000 were unsuccessful.
