The Government’s ‘points based’ system policy paper

The United Kingdom (UK) exited the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020. This policy statement sets out how we will fulfil our commitment to the British public and take back control of our borders.

We are ending free movement and will introduce an Immigration Bill to bring in a firm and fair points-based system that will attract the high-skilled workers we need to contribute to our economy, our communities and our public services. We intend to create a high wage, high-skill, high productivity economy.

We will deliver a system that works in the interests of the whole of the UK and prioritises the skills a person has to offer, not where they come from.

For too long, distorted by European free movement rights, the immigration system has been failing to meet the needs of the British people. Failing to deliver benefits across the UK and failing the highly-skilled migrants from around the world who want to come to the UK and make a contribution to our economy and society.

I am at the further end of a long journey which has taken me through times living abroad in Kenya, Uganda, Mauritius and Brussels as well as a great variety of countries for shorter visits; through a working life in international development, the European institutions, multinational business and latterly in the Church of England as a parish priest, Archdeacon and adviser to the Church nationally on inter religious affairs. For the past five years I have been a vicar again in the Earls Court area. I have chaired the London Faiths Forum, initiated the Near Neighbours programmes. I am a trustee of St Ethelburga Centre for Reconciliation and Peace. I have grown up within the Church of England's parishes, chaplaincies and schools where its heartbeat is and I value it and its contribution to the formation of individuals and communities above all other structures, believing that it represents at its best the incarnational love of God for all people
