Press Comment On The End Of The Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme


Employment, Policy, Visas/Work Permits

12 September, 2013

Welcoming the Government’s decision
to bring to an end the Seasonal Agricultural Workers Scheme, Sir Andrew Green,
Chairman of Migration Watch UK, said:

‘This decision has to be right. We
now have a labour market of 500 million in the European Union, it simply makes
no sense to bring in unskilled workers from outside. This decision is a
welcome indication that the Government is serious about reducing immigration.
It can only be helpful to the young British workers seeking their first job.‘
