U.K. Unveils Post-Brexit Migrant Plan
Updated on

After last-ditch Cabinet negotiations, U.K. Home Secretary Sajid Javid will on Wednesday set out the government’s long-awaited immigration plans for post-Brexit Britain.

The government will hold a 12-month public consultation before deciding whether potential migrants should earn over 30,000 pounds ($38,000) a year before they qualify to enter as highly-skilled workers after Britain leaves the European Union, Javid said on BBC Radio 4.
