UK won't favor EU workers after split

Now, reacting to a recent report by the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), the construction insurance expert is telling firms to play on the safe side.

At a cabinet meeting yesterday, ministers reportedly backed a system which would be based on skills rather than nationality following a presentation by MAC chairman Professor Alan Manning.

They also said there should be no preferential treatment for workers from the EU.

The UK may be unable to export any animal and animal products to the European Union without a Brexit deal, threatening Britain's £3.1 billion animal product European Union export market.

Other suggestions in the government-commissioned MAC report included scrapping the cap for Tier 2 (general) visas and extending the immigration route to medium-skilled roles.

Obesity overtaking smoking as biggest female cancer risk
This is because some of the most common obesity-related cancers - such as breast and womb cancers - predominantly affect women. Around 35,000 cases of cancer will be due to smoking in 2026 compared to 15,000 linked to overweight and obesity.

'A key conclusion was that high skilled migration is of greater economic benefit than lower skilled migration, and as such the MAC recommended that the new system should make it easier for higher skilled than lower skilled workers to come to the UK.

It said this would not mean there is no supply of low-skilled migrant workers, stating that most of the existing stock would remain and there would likely be a continued flow through family migration or the existing youth mobility scheme.

In addition, it was reported Monday that the Home Office plans to grant European Union nationals limitless access to Britain for more than two years after a no-deal Brexit, during which time arrivals would be able to apply for a visa enabling them to stay permanently.

The Financial Times reported that senior ministers are supportive of making sure immigration routes are kept open for low-skilled workers, and recognise that industries such as construction, catering and hospitality could falter without such options post-Brexit. The paper admits that although Green Cards are issued free of charge, insurance providers "can decide to reflect production and handling costs in a small increase to their administration fees". "But we would control how many there are and in what sectors".

"We're told by some people that we're going to have a recession when we leave, and at the same time that we need mass immigration to keep the economy afloat", she allegedly said. "While it makes sense for the United Kingdom to want to attract certain types of specialist labour, ignoring our need for generalists who can work across a wide variety of roles that we struggle to fill domestically is short-sighted and won't help the industries that rely on these individuals".
