As the Government considers the options for a future immigration system we will also need to understand the potential impacts of any proposed changes in all parts of the UK.

This was published for the first time as part of the BBC 2016/17 annual report. The BBC is operationally and editorially independent from government, and the amount it pays its staff and talent is a matter for them. It is for licence fee payers to determine whether the BBC is value for money.</p> more like this
