Business view of Immigration White Paper

Analysis of the Government’s proposals for immigration after Brexit

After almost two years of delay, the Government have published their vision for post-Brexit immigration in a 164 page White Paper. Positive progress was made with further consultation on level of the salary threshold, ambition to make the system less bureaucratic for employers and lifting the cap on skilled visas. But serious concerns remain over the proposed 12-month temporary route for lower-skilled workers and retention of the £1,000 per worker, per year charge on employers. The CBI’s analysis below includes a ‘Red, Amber, Green (RAG) rating’ and summary of the key proposals for business.
