Consultation response: Home Affairs Select Committee inquiry into the Tier 2 Skilled Workers System

09 September 2015

The Commons Home Affairs Committee is holding an inquiry into the Tier 2 Skilled Workers system following the statutory cap on employer-sponsored skilled Tier 2 immigrants being reached for the first time. They are particularly interested in understanding the impacts on the available workforce and the economy.

The Society has responded to emphasise the value of non-EU researchers to the UK and the importance of maintaining the ability of UK institutions to recruit them.
