Both Mr Johnson and Ms Patel support “economic” migration and don’t support giving priority to EU migrants - which could be beneficial for skilled Indians, including students who go to the UK to study. The Prime Minister has instructed the Migration Advisory Committee, a panel of academics and economists who advise the government on migration policy, to re-design the UK’s post-Brexit immigration system. Ms Patel has also announced that priority would be given to “those with the highest skills and the greatest talents - to attract those who add the most to our economy”.
