Concern over Government’s post-Brexit plans for immigration

Board of Deputies Vice President Amanda Bowman has voiced her concern at the Government’s newly announced plans for post-Brexit immigration.

Amanda said: “The Board of Deputies notes with some concern the newly announced post-Brexit immigration plans, and the direct effect this may have on Britain’s Jewish community. Many of the security guards and care workers that the Jewish community employs, for example, are EU migrants. The new rules will make it much harder to attract new workers, meaning that costs for organisations which provide security and social care for our community are likely to rise.

“We have relayed these concerns to officials at the Department for Exiting the EU and the Home Office, and is continuing to engage with the Home Office to ensure these issues are taken into account when the new policies come into effect.”
