Are drivers skilled? measure by salary - future immigration paper.

After the Tuesday vote, a paper titled ‘The UK’s future skills-based immigration system’ was published the following day by the Home Office. It aims to set out the UK’s approach to immigration after Brexit.

The proposed new system, which would be introduced in phases from 2021, envisages scrapping the current cap on the number of skilled workers that can be admitted from the EU or elsewhere, while there will be a consultation on a minimum salary requirement for skilled staff applying for five-year visas.

Talking to the IOC, Alan Lewis, employment partner with Irwin Mitchell solicitors said

The minimum salary of £30,000 required for skilled staff to apply for 5-year visas will, if applied to drivers, be likely to be prohibitive to recruiting anywhere near the numbers required for current logistics requirements.
