Your views needed on European workers in the UK labour market
08 Aug 2017
YOUR views on workers in the UK labour market from the European Economic Area (EEA) are needed by the UK Government NOW
Don’t miss this vital opportunity to make your opinions known and to influence future decisions on this important matter
The European Economic Area (EEA) unites all the EU Member States and the three EFTA States of Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway into an Internal Market governed by the same basic rules which enable persons (as well as goods, services and capital) to move freely about the EEA.
In July 2017, the UK Government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to advise on the economic and social impacts of the UK’s exit from the European Union and how the UK’s immigration system should be aligned with a modern industrial strategy.
This Call for Evidence from the MAC is accompanied by a useful note outlining some analysis of the UK labour market ,and other countries’ migration systems, to kickstart the Call for Evidence. The note doesn’t make any policy recommendations nor provide conclusions, it asks questions rather than answers them.
The MAC welcomes your comments and feedback on any of the issues raised, as well as responses to the wider Call for Evidence.
This Call identifies the sort of information the MAC will find most helpful to receive during the initial phase of its consideration of the government’s commission, and provides details as to how to submit your evidence.
It seeks views and evidence from anyone with relevant knowledge, expertise or experience to help inform the MAC response.
The MAC strongly welcomes views from a wide range of interested parties from all parts of the UK (e.g. businesses, employers, recruiters, trade unions, academics, think tanks, representative bodies, government departments, etc).
The questions provide a general indication of the information which the MAC would find most useful, but respondents may provide the MAC with any other relevant information they wish. Responses should be evidence-based and, where possible, provide data and/or examples to support the answers given.
The MAC asks that you respond to questions relevant to your expertise; they don’t expect respondents to answer every single question.
Thank you for taking part.
