On 27 July 2017, the Government commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee to advise on our future immigration system after the UK leaves the EU. We will await their report, which is due in September, before making any decisions about the future immigration system. EU net migration remains positive and the recently published labour market statistics continue to show more EU citizens in the UK labour force than at the time of the EU referendum.
