UKHospitality reacts to Brexit transition deal
UKHospitality has welcomed the Government’s Draft Withdrawal Agreement and reassurance for UK businesses.
UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “The plan will provide businesses with more peace of mind and give employers a chance to begin drawing up their plans for their businesses post-Brexit.
“A full right to remain during the transition period with a chance to work towards full status, will provide non-UK EU workers with an opportunity to come to the UK with a sense of security and stability. With a significant portion of the UK’s hospitality workforce coming from outside the UK, this is the clarity and assurance that we have been calling on the Government to deliver.
“The Government needs to now communicate this message as widely as possible to reassure businesses and their employees and to make sure that EU citizens are aware of the opportunities that still exist to them. The next step is for the Government to begin, in earnest, putting in place the framework for the future immigration policy at the soonest opportunity.”
