Purpose of the consultation
The External Affairs and Additional Legislation Committee has agreed to undertake a consultation into changes to freedom of movement after Brexit – the implications for Wales.
With a view to informing the Welsh and UK Government’s thinking in this area, the Committee is seeking the views of stakeholders of the policy implications of the proposals for Wales.
Specifically, the Committee is seeking views from stakeholders on the following questions:
- What is your assessment of the implications for Wales of the UK Government’s White Paper proposals on immigration after Brexit?
- Is there a case for allowing the devolved nations to do things differently in relation to immigration policy after Brexit?
- What are your views on the proposal for a Wales-specific Shortage Occupation List (“SOL”) ?
- What are your views on the proposal to bring EU nationals into an expanded Tier 2 , and ending any distinction between EU and non-EU workers?
- What are your views on the salary threshold of £30,000 for Tier 2 immigration and its implications for Wales?
- How well is the EU Settlement Scheme operating? Is there more that the Welsh Government could be doing to ensure that EU nationals resident in Wales are registering under the scheme?
- Are there any other issues relating to immigration policy after Brexit that you would like to bring to the attention of the Committee?
The deadline for submitting evidence is 10 September 2019.
