Former Tory leader and Brexit supporter Iain Duncan Smith suggested the UK could “extend the work permit process” after Brexit to ensure Britain has an effective immigration system.
A report from the powerful Commons Home Affairs committee has seen MPs from both sides of the debate unite over criticising the vacuum in government policy on the crucial issue.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Mr Duncan Smith put forward his proposal: “I think the best thing to do is work with what we have got and make it work for everyone around the world
“You basically extend the work permit process across the EU and the rest of the world. People can come here for work but they need to have work to come to and that work needs to have been agreed and accepted that there isn’t a person in the UK that could do that work and has the skills to do that work.”
