Lords Committee examines economic and fiscal impact of family migration
The Justice and Home Affairs Committee is holding the second oral evidence session of its inquiry on family migration.
In this session, the economic and fiscal impact of UK family migration policies is being examined. A panel of expert economists is providing evidence.
Possible questions include:
- What is the impact of family migration on the UK economy, public finances and labour market, and how does this compare to migrants coming via other official routes?
- Does the Minimum Income Requirement of the UK Immigration Rules achieve its objective (of ensuring that migrants coming on a family visa do not rely on public funds), and, if not, how could it be improved so that it does?
- How can one best strike a fair balance between economic and fiscal considerations and the best interest of migrant children and the wellbeing of families?
