Report urges UK to lift cap on skilled migrants after Brexit

LONDON (AP) – A British government-commissioned report says citizens of European Union countries should not have easier access to the U.K. after Brexit than people from other parts of the world.

EU nationals currently can live and work freely in the U.K., but that will end after Britain leaves the bloc next year.

The government asked the Migration Advisory Committee for a report on the impact of EU migration that will help shape future policy.

The committee said Tuesday that “a migrant’s impact depends on factors such as their skills, employment, age and use of public services, and not fundamentally on their nationality.”

It said the government should make it easier for skilled immigrants to come to Britain by removing a limit on such workers, while restricting access for lower-skilled migrants.
