Brexit: Input your views on migration to Government before 27th October

Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has launched a consultation on the economic and social impacts of the UK’s exit from the European Union and also on how the UK’s immigration system should be aligned with a modern industrial strategy. This will run until 27 October 2017.

MAC strongly welcome views from a wide range of interested parties from all parts of the UK such as businesses, employers, recruiters, trade unions, academics, think tanks, representative bodies, government departments, etc. or anyone with relevant knowledge, expertise or experience to help inform the MAC response to Government. The request is for evidence based responses with data and examples included.

The consultation requests input on:

  • EEA Migration trends
  • Recruitment practices, training and skills
  • Economic, social and fiscal impacts

Call to action:

The Life Sciences Organisation (LSO) at the Department for International Trade (DIT) would like to encourage our contacts across the life sciences industry to respond to the consultation and make sure your voice is heard.

The consultation is now open and can be accessed online here.
