    Prime Minister rejects points based migration system

    Publications

    Theresa May, speaking in Hangzhou, China at the G20 summit, announced that there would be no ‘points-based system’ for controlling EU migration, despite this being one of the key policies of the Vote Leave campaign in the run-up to the referendum. Mrs May said that such measures would not allow the government to effectively control the number of people entering the country, as such systems are open to abuse by those who can demonstrate that they tick all of the relevant boxes. While refusing at the same time to comment on what alternative immigration policies would be introduced, Mrs May did confirm there would be a ‘red line’ on any future negotiations with the EU over the free movement of EU citizens to the UK.
