'Profound implications for Scotland' in UK post-Brexit immigration plan'Profound implications for Scotland' in UK post-Brexit immigration plan

The UK Government's post-Bexit immigration plan "doesn't work for the whole country and it certainly doesn't work for Scotland" according to the director general of the CBI, Carolyn Fairbairn.

The Government plans to set a minimum £30,000 salary for skilled migrants seeking five-year visas. In Scotland, the median salary is £24,000.

Add to this an ageing Scottish workforce, which the CBI estimates will mean that, in 20 years' time, only a third of the population will be of working age. Scotland needs a flexible plan to recruit the people it needs to grow.

If not, Ms Fairbairn said, there will be "profound implications for Scotland, its tax base and public services."
