The United Kingdom Government’s position on migration post-Brexit is likely to have a major impact on the availability of labour, not just seasonal skilled workers but across the board in both high and low-skilled jobs. That is one of the reasons why the Scottish Government is lobbying the UK Government hard to maintain membership of the single market, with its associated free movement of citizens. Scotland values the contribution that temporary workers and the migrant community make to our economy and we are determined to do what we can to continue the current arrangements.
