LONDON -- British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he plans to introduce a new fast-track visa to attract more of the world's best scientists to the U.K.

Few details were announced. Johnson said the government would work with the scientific community on the new visa, "with a view to launching it later this year."

That has sparked fears Britain may face shortages in key job areas.
