We are considering the options for our future immigration very carefully and will outline our proposals in due course.

The Prime Minister was clear in her speech on 22 September of the need for an implementation period to ensure that people and businesses – both in the UK and in the EU – have time to adjust to the new arrangements in a smooth and orderly way. During the implementation period, people will continue to be able to come and live and work in the UK; but there will be a registration system – an essential preparation for the new regime.
