Call for Evidence

Labour in the food supply chain

  1. What impact will the Government’s proposed points-based immigration system have on labour in the food supply chain? Which sectors will be most affected by a reduced ability to recruit from abroad?
  2. Will investment in staff retention, productivity, technology and innovation compensate for the Government not implementing an immigration route for “lower skilled workers”?
  3. What impact has the Seasonal Workers pilot scheme had on agriculture and horticulture? What should be the future of the scheme, including whether it should cover more, or different, agricultural and horticultural sectors?
  4. How many seasonal workers are required in agriculture and horticulture each year, and how can this demand be reasonably met from 2021? 

This call for written evidence has now closed.
