UKHospitality has endorsed the CBI’s report into the UK’s future immigration policy. The report, to which UKHospitality contributed, makes a number of recommendations to the Government.
Commenting on the report, UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “This report highlights the pressing need for a future immigration policy that exists to support the UK economy. The CBI’s report also underlines the need for a discussion about the realities and practicalities of migration to the UK and its effect on business.
“The hospitality sector is particularly in need of a future policy that provides employers with access to talent to support continued investment and growth, alongside our work to develop domestic talent. This means acknowledging the need for a variety of workers across the sector at many levels, not just those who are deemed highly-skilled. We particularly welcome the recommendation to secure the rights of current EU citizens in the UK, regardless of an exit deal.”
