Academics give evidence on UK-EU movement of people

28 November 2016

The EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee takes evidence from Jonathan Portes, Senior Fellow, UK in a Changing Europe, and Madeleine Sumption, Director of Oxford University's Migration Observatory, on the potential options for UK-EU movement of people after the UK leaves the EU.


Wednesday 30 November, Committee Room 3, Palace of Westminster

At 10:30am

  • Jonathan Portes, Senior Fellow, UK in a Changing Europe
  • Madeleine Sumption, Director, Migration Observatory, Oxford University

Possible questions

  • How adequate are current statistics on UK-EU migration flows and what do they tell us about the patterns of migration of  EU citizens to the UK and UK citizens to the EU?
  • What are the main choices available to the Government if  it wishes to exercise greater control over the numbers or characteristics of EU migrants coming to the UK?
  • What implications could those different options have for UK citizens if they were to face reciprocal restrictions in EU countries?
