BCC comments on proposals for new UK immigration system
Commenting on the government’s policy proposals for points-based immigration system, BCC Director General Adam Marshall said:
“The speed and scale of these changes would require significant adjustment by businesses from Cornwall to Inverness.
“Companies are already investing heavily in home-grown talent across the UK, but critical labour shortages mean firms will still need access to overseas workers at all skill levels.
“The new points system must be able to respond quickly to changing market needs, and the application process must be radically simplified.”
