ALMR – migration consultation an ‘opportunity for sector engagement’

The Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers (ALMR) has told the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), which is carrying out the investigation into the benefits of migrant workers in the UK, that its consultation offers an “opportunity for sector engagement”.

The ALMR’s letter to the MAC highlights the important economic contribution made by eating and drinking out businesses and the need for access to EU workers to secure growth. It also confirms the ALMR’s intention to provide evidence during the consultation to secure a deal for businesses in the sector.

ALMR chief executive Kate Nicholls said: “We have written to the MAC to provide them with the information they need to make an informed decision on an immigration policy that suits employers. We have offered our full support as the voice of eating and drinking out venues and will be responding to the consultation to make sure our members’ voices are heard. This is a good opportunity to engage with the government on an issue that is going to have a huge effect on UK businesses and influence an immigration policy that will have long-standing consequences.”
