Welsh Government responds to call for evidence on Shortage Occupation ListWelsh Government responds to call for evidence on Shortage Occupation List

The Welsh Government has issued a robust response to the Migration Advisory Committee's Call for Evidence on the Shortage Occupation List, following engagement with the social care sector.

The response strongly opposes the UK Government's proposals on future migration and asks it to pause current plans. The Welsh Government says the pandemic has 'thrown into sharp relief the UK's reliance on key workers, many of whom came originally from the European Economic Area (EEA), and without their support essential front-line services we have been depending on now more than ever would not be sustainable. The current experience has shown that we must value all skills and that the proposed skill selective approach to future immigration may indeed be damaging in response to the skill requirements of a post-COVID-19 world.'
