London Promises a Balanced Immigration Policy after Brexit

London Promises a Balanced Immigration Policy after Brexit”

Almost one million highly qualified European Union nationals working in Britain are planning to leave the country following last year's Brexit referendum, a new study has found.

Those in "high-skilled occupations" will be granted permits to work for a longer period of three to five years.

The Guardian published the previous night a paper outlining plans to reduce the number of low-skilled European workers coming to the island when the United Kingdom leaves the bloc in 2019.

Labour MP Alison McGovern, a leading supporter of Open Britain and co-chair of the Labour campaign for the single market said: "This leaked document is part and parcel of a mean and cynical approach which is already deterring people from coming here".

The Guardian said the government was also outlining a phased introduction of a new immigration system that ends the right to settle in Britain for most European migrants - and places tough new restrictions on their rights to bring in family members.

The paper, marked "sensitive", is reported to be a move by Theresa May's government to drive down net migration from 250,000 to under 100,000.

That tension was reinforced on Wednesday when leaked details of the Government's future immigration policy proposals were criticised by an array of business groups. After that, to stay longer, they will have to apply for a residence permit.

According to Sky News, the letter has been sent to FTSE100-listed firms, as well as other companies, seeking their support.

The document also indicates the Home Office wants to tighten definitions of family members, dumping European Union definitions of "extended" family members, which the document claims establish virtually no limits on the distance of a relationship between an European Union citizen and an extended family member, "as long as they provide valid proof of the relationship between them".

Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott said: "Labour wants fair rules and reasonable management of migration in accordance with the needs of our economy and our values as a party".

London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, said the plan was a "blueprint on how to strangle" London's economy, which "risks thousands of families being split up...the British people did not vote to make our country and future generations poorer".

The leaked draft document, obtained by the Guardian, sets out a series of proposals for the UK's immigration system post-Brexit.

The document has been described as "a platform for discussion" and has not been agreed by the Government.

He added that the Home Office's interpretation of the role of the ECJ in respect of families was likewise "highly misleading".

"I remember it vividly".

The letter reads: "We write as leaders of some of the UK's most dynamic businesses operating in sectors as diverse as technology, financial services and advanced manufacturing".

"Well, it's important we strike a balance here". We have to meet the demand of the British people that there should be greater control on immigration going forward. "Now it is the turn of government to give us the solution".
