All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration

AGM/Future Immigration Policy on Self-Employment event 22 January

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration will hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM) for the new Parliament on Tuesday 21 January 2020. The AGM will reconstitute the group and agree its key officers. It will also be an opportunity to discuss future work plans.

The AGM will be immediately followed by a panel discussion event in Parliament on future immigration policy for the self-employed after Brexit.

One of the key issues that the Conservative government will need to consider in its future immigration policy is what will happen to the self-employed after we leave the EU.

The reforms that the government have been considering, including a reformed business sponsorship system and new entrepreneur visas, may work well for the employed but less so for the self-employed.

This event will bring together a panel of leading experts and sector representatives who will be presenting their concerns and recommendations to parliamentarians before opening the discussion to the floor and fielding questions from attendees.
