06 January 2017

The EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee takes evidence from Robert Goodwill MP, Minister for Immigration at the Home Office, and Rt Hon. David Jones MP, Minister of State at the Department for Exiting the European Union, on the options for UK-EU migration after Brexit and their potential impact.

Witnesses

Wednesday 11 January, Committee Room 3, Palace of Westminster

At 10.30am

  • Robert Goodwill MP, Minister of State for Immigration, Home Office
  • Rt Hon. David Jones, Minister of State, Department for Exiting the European Union

Possible questions

  • What does 'taking back control' of immigration mean in regards to EU citizens coming to the UK? Does it necessarily imply a reduction in the number coming to the UK?
  • How will the desire to end free movement be balanced in the negotiations with other possible objectives such as maintaining access to the single market?
  • Would it be possible to maintain free movement for students and self-sufficient persons while restricting free movement of workers?
  • What protection does the Government believe it can deliver for UK citizens who wish to live and work in the EU in the future?
  • What impact might restrictions on low-skilled EU immigration have on public sector employers such as the NHS?
