United Kingdom government will carefully consider post-Brexit immigration advice

Why the UK should scrap high-skilled migrants cap By European Interest

Why the UK should scrap high-skilled migrants cap By European Interest

The Home Office informed cabinet ministers last week of its intention to copy the existing migration system used to determine non-EU migration and apply it to Europeans who arrive in Britain after December 2020, according to reports.

While stressing it was not taking a position on whether migration policy should be part of negotiations with Brussels, the committee pointed out that preferential access for European Union nationals could be a bargaining chip for Britain in that "the biggest gainers from migration are often the migrants themselves".

It said: "A migrant's impact depends on factors such as their skills, employment, age and use of public services, and not fundamentally on their nationality".

"Undoubtedly some sectors will complain vociferously about being faced with an alleged cliff-edge in their supply of labour", the report said, noting it would be unlikely to have much of an immediate effect on the number of low-skilled migrants in Britain and that family reunification would be a continuing source.

Dom Hallas, the executive director of The Coalition for a Digital Economy, said the report "confirms what the tech startup community already knows - high-skilled immigration is beneficial to productivity and innovation in the UK".

The report makes the "possible exception of a seasonal agricultural workers scheme", but recommends that this should come with the requirement that "employers pay a higher minimum wage in return for the privileged access to labour".

As part of its advice, the MAC called for an end to the cap of Tier 2 visas or so-called general visas, to allow more skilled workers to enter Britain, and suggested the visa type be opened up to include medium-skilled jobs.

In late July, an outpouring of love and concern was felt nationwide as word of Demi Lovato's drug overdose spread. I think that was one of things that got me through the next couple of days when she was in critical condition.

Prof Manning added: "The problem with free movement is that it leaves migration to the United Kingdom exclusively up to migrants and United Kingdom residents have no control over the level and mix of migration".

"We will carefully consider the Migration Advisory Committee's recommendations before setting out further detail on the UK's future immigration system", a spokesperson for the British interior ministry said on Tuesday. The study was produced by think-tank British Future and anti-racism campaigners Hope Not Hate ahead of a report by the Migration Advisory Committee, to be released tomorrow.

- There is no evidence to suggest migrants are linked to any increases in crime, nor any evidence that migration has reduced the quality of healthcare or the educational attainment of UK-born children.

Professor Jonathan Portes, senior fellow at The UK In A Changing Europe, said: "Since 2010, many aspects of UK immigration policy have been based not on analysis and evidence but on unpleasant and damaging nativism".

Non-EU immigration stood at 316,000, with around 81,000 leaving.

The MAC report, which will be taken into account by the government as it prepares its future immigration strategy, also recommends no limits or caps on the number of highly skilled workers such as doctors and engineers who can come and work in the UK.
