Have Your Say on UK Business Immigration – MAC Launches Call for Evidence on Shortage Occupations

    View Authors November 2018

    In June 2018, the government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to carry out a full review of the shortage occupation list (SOL). The MAC is now seeking views and evidence from anyone with relevant knowledge, expertise or experience in relation to “hard-to-fill” roles, to help inform its response to the government.

    This is a separate exercise to the government’s anticipated immigration white paper on post-Brexit immigration on which we have commented. However, given the possibility of future skills shortages, it is highly likely that evidence gathered by the MAC on the SOL will be taken into consideration in determining post-Brexit immigration policy.
