The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration launched an inquiry in February 2017 into the experience and concerns of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and public sector organisations in the area of migration, as the UK seeks to withdraw from the European Union and the Single Market.
The inquiry will take written and oral evidence throughout February and March with the intention of producing a published report in late April. The inquiry committee is seeking submissions from representatives of SMEs and industry sector bodies (in particular technology, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, social care, and food production and processing). It is also looking for submissions from regional chambers of commerce and equivalent bodies, the trade unions, and organisations that represent migrant community interests.
The deadline for the submission of written evidence is 28 February 2017. Oral evidence sessions are yet to be confirmed but likely to be held on the 20 (Manchester) and 21-22 March (London).
