Brexit's Impact on Migration: UK Net Migration Numbers Spark Debate

Brexit's Impact on Migration: UK Net Migration Numbers Spark Debate

The UK's net migration numbers have sparked a big debate.
During the 2020-21 year, 606,000 people migrated to the UK, while 550,000 left, according to the Office for National Statistics.

The east of England is highly dependent on immigration, and in Great Yarmouth, which voted for Brexit, people are concerned about the promises made by previous prime ministers on migration.

The EU Migrant Worker Project at Cambridge University is researching the impact of Brexit on migration, and it has found that while free movement has been switched off, temporary visa schemes are now in place.

Local employers, such as Vidia Ruhomutally, who runs a care home for around 40 residents and provides jobs for over 70 people, have found that there is nowhere near enough local people willing to do the work, so they have had to rely on migrants.

The debate over migration is complex and involves emotion, communities, public services, promises, and people.

This article discusses how after Brexit, the UK has control over its immigration policy, but making changes comes with trade-offs.

The Conservative Party has revised their promise to reduce net migration to a more achievable goal of half a million.

The author suggests that this is a realistic target and will be a topic of discussion during the upcoming general election.

The article also mentions that the conversation about migration is ongoing and complex, involving issues of promises, people, and places.
