EU Nationals: Transport
Lords
To ask Her Majesty's Government what meetings Home Office (1) ministers, and (2) officials, have held with representatives of the transport sector in respect of the movement of EU citizens after the UK’s exit from the EU.
Answered on: 16 October 2017

The Government is considering a range of options for the immigration system for EU citizens after the UK leaves the EU. Since the Referendum result last year, Ministers have been undertaking an extensive programme of engagement and evidence gathering with all interested parties including business, industry, transport, trade unions, educational institutions and many others in the coming months. On 27 July, my RHF the Home Secretary also commissioned the independent Migration Advisory Committee to advise on current patterns of EU migration across all sectors, and the role of migration in the wider economy and society.

The Government will be setting out initial proposals for a new immigration system in the Migration White Paper later in the autumn. We will carry out further engagement with stakeholders once our proposals have been published.
