Britain's immigration minister resigned on Saturday after it emerged that he had employed a cleaner who was in the country illegally, Prime Minister David Cameron's office said.Downing Street said there was no suggestion Mark Harper, a junior minister in the Home Office, knew the cleaner was an illegal immigrant, adding that the woman had given him false papers.Harper had been overseeing the passage of new immigration laws, a key issue for Cameron's Conservative party ahead of elections in May 2015 .The government's efforts to push a new immigration bill through parliament have had a bumpy ride, with Conservative rebels saying it does not go far enough despite the inclusion of measures such as stripping naturalised terror suspects of British citizenship.
