3 February 2018
The CBI has commented on reports that the Government may delay publication of its White Paper on immigration.
Josh Hardie, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:
“Businesses will be hugely frustrated by rumours that the Government won’t reveal their plans on staff mobility until the last minute. From tech start-ups to care homes, not knowing what staff you will be able to access will deter investment.
“Firms need time to plan for change and that is why many will be deeply disappointed by any delays to the White Paper.
“It is perfectly possible to be clear on people’s rights to work in the UK, for the transition period at least.
“The Government should commit now that people’s rights to work won’t change over the first two years from our date of departure from the EU.”
