Immigration was one of the main issues around the UK’s decision to leave the EU. The outcome of the General Election is likely to determine the design of a future immigration system, with party proposals ranging from the introduction of a post-Brexit “Australian-style” points system, to continuing free movement within the EU. This briefing focuses on:
- The trends in UK immigration, and data about the migrant population;
- The economic and social impacts of immigration; and public concerns about immigration;
- Present and future immigration policy including the different proposals by the main parties.
