UK firms 'fearful' for future migration system

UK employers are "fearful" about what a future migration system will be like after Britain leaves the European Union, according to a new report.
The Migration Advisory Committee said businesses were concerned about their ability to recruit workers from the EU after Britain leaves the EU.
UK employers also see EU workers as "more reliable" and eager than their British counterparts, the report said.
The Home Office said it was committed to "sustainable migration".
The interim report is part of a review assessing the impact of Brexit on the UK labour market.
Many employers expressed the view that migrants from the European Economic Area are more reliable and more willing to work long and anti-social hours than UK born workers, the report said.
The committee, however, said it was difficult to objectively assess these claims.
