TheCityUK supports the Cabinet decision to treat EU migrants in the same way as those from other parts of the world – but recommends further streamlined immigration routes be put in place as part of the Brexit agreement with the EU.
Miles Celic, Chief Executive Officer, TheCityUK, said,
Mutual access to talent between the UK and the EU is a vital underpinning of our current and future ability to compete internationally and secure investment. This needs to be considered alongside attracting the workers that we need from around the world, and investing in education and training at home.
“We must have a robust and flexible immigration system which is fit for the whole economy. Any future trade agreements between the UK, and the EU, or with other markets, can build on this foundation.”
