Subscribe to Campaigning publication feeds


EEF has responded to the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee inquiry into Brexit and the Labour Market: Brexit or Opportunity?

Our submission responded to questions around:

  • the level of net migration needed in the UK
  • the impact on wages in the UK if access to EU nationals was restricted
  • whether there is a case for a regional immigration system
  • how successful controls on non-EU migration have been and the impact of these policies.

You can read our full response below.

Following our written submission, EEF was asked to give oral evidence to the Committee. You can watch our oral evidence given my Tim Thomas, Director of Employment and Skills Policy here.
