Ending freedom of movement on October 31 piles further pressure on business, says London First
19 August 2019
Commenting on the announcement that freedom of movement will end on October 31, Jasmine Whitbread, Chief Executive of London First, said:
“With only weeks to go until October 31, announcing a unilateral end to freedom of movement in the event of no deal piles further pressure on businesses. Planning ahead is impossible when rules of the game continually change.
“The Government must avoid a cliff-edge and give clear, definitive advice to EU citizens and employers, as continually moving the goalposts only adds to the already high level of confusion. Our economy needs a fair and managed immigration system that keeps the UK open to the talent we need, while restoring public trust.”
