The All-Parliamentary Party Group (APPG) for Migration launched an official inquiry into the effects of Brexit on immigration. The theme of the inquiry – Beyond the highly skilled – the needs of other economic migration stakeholders – focused on the experience and concerns of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and public sector organisations in the area of migration, as the UK seeks to withdraw from the European Union and the Single Market.
The APPG are sought submissions from representatives of SMEs and industry sector bodies (in particular technology, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, social care, and food production and processing). Submissions were also sought from regional chambers of commerce and equivalent bodies, the trade unions, and organisations that represent migrant community interests. The APPG’s Inquiry took written and oral evidence from stakeholders throughout February and March.
