End preferential access to UK for EU workers: MAC report
All migration to the United Kingdom should be managed uniformly with no preferential access to European Union (EU) workers after Brexit, according to a new report commissioned by the UK Government. The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), which prepared the report, had been tasked with collating recommendations for a new immigration policy post Brexit.

"A migrant's impact depends on factors such as their skills, employment, age and use of public services, and not fundamentally on their nationality," the report said.

The findings complement Prime Minister Theresa May's recent message that her government wants to apply rules to all migrants equally because British voters who favoured an exit from the EU did not want a preferential treatment for EU migrants.

Under the EU's free movement rules, EU citizens have so far been able to enter the United Kingdom freely and look for work on arrival as opposed to strict visa norms that apply to workers from non-EU countries.

There should be no limits or caps on the number of highly skilled workers like doctors and engineers who can come and work in the United Kingdom, the report recommends. The current cap on skilled workers is set at 20,700 per year for migrants from non-EU countries.

MAC felt higher-skilled workers tend to have higher earnings, which means they make a more positive contribution to the public finances of the United Kingdom and have an overall positive impact on productivity and innovation.

The report was commissioned by former home secretary Amber Rudd in July last year. (DS)
