The government has recently published a White Paper describing what it is seeking to achieve in negotiating our exit from, and new partnership with, the European Union. The 100 page document only makes limited references to the future of immigration from the EU.
The White Paper says that the UK will end the free of movement of people but suggests EU citizens would be allowed to enter the UK without visas.
The government will release further details of the UK’s future immigration system in “due course” in the form of a separate White Paper and an Immigration Bill.
Meanwhile the Home Secretary recently suggested a similar system could be adopted as exists between the EU and Canada regarding labour mobility for executives.
