Details

In July 2017, the Home Secretary commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to assess the impact on the UK labour market of the UK’s exit from the EU and how the UK’s immigration system should be aligned with a modern industrial strategy. This is to provide the evidence base for UK migration after the implementation period in 2021.

From 4 August to 27 October 2017, the MAC held a call for evidence as well as meeting many stakeholders. Details of stakeholders the MAC met and also which bodies submitted evidence are contained in the annexes to the interim update.

The MAC’s interim update sets out a summary of the views expressed by employers and of the regional issues raised. These themes seem the best way of summarising the views expressed to us but should not be taken to imply that the MAC endorses a sectoral and/or regional approach to post-Brexit migration policy.

As well as the interim update, the MAC is publishing on its website all the written evidence it received from stakeholders, with the exception of a handful of bodies who asked for their evidence to be confidential.
