EU workers no longer priority to UK, when country leaves bloc

The UK plans to stop preferential access to the country’s labour market for European Union workers after Brexit, British Prime Minister Theresa May has stated.

French news agency AFP reports that in an announcement at her Conservative party congress, the British PM stated the EU’s free movement of people will end with Brexit and «for the first time in decades, it will be this country that controls and chooses who we want to come here».

Immigration was a central issue in the Brexit campaign before of the 2016 vote to leave the bloc.

May added that she would publish plans for a single system for EU and non-EU countries later in 2018, before a bill that would be published in 2019 seeking a skills-based migration system.
