The UK Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) has issued a public call for evidence on the economic and social impacts of the UK's exit from the European Union.  So if you have evidence you can share around the potential impact for rural communities and businesses, please send it to MAC@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk.   The call for evidence is accompanied by a note outlining some preliminary analysis of the UK labour market and other countries’ migration systems to kick-start the process.

In July 2017, the UK Government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to advise on the economic and social impacts of the UK’s exit from the European Union and also on how the UK’s immigration system should be aligned with a modern industrial strategy.  The MAC Secretariat will be arranging meetings and visits with stakeholders during the call for evidence period and they will also host open sessions for interested parties in different parts of the UK – details of which will be published on their website.

Evidence must be submitted by 27 October 2017
