The United Kingdom will implement measures to take back full control of the United Kingdom’s immigration policy and fishing rights. It comes as the UK hopes to leave the European Union in the coming days. The UK will implement legislation measures that will allow the country to take back full control.
Importantly, the UK has stated that it will seek to implement a points-based immigration system. The UK now wants to bring in skilled workers and end the freedom of movement. The Home Secretary, Priti Patel, has stated that the UK will introduce a policy that will see the UK have control over its border and withdraw the country out the single market, in essence, ending the EU’s dictation in UK immigration.
The UK has also signaled that it wants to take back control of its fishing rights. As part of the European Union, we are in the Common Fisheries Policy, this means there is a quota on the number of fish that the UK can catch. As the UK leaves the EU it will withdraw from the CFP and secure its fishing waters, in a major victory.
