On 27 April 2012 the Minister for Immigration wrote to the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) asking that the MAC update the list of occupations that qualify for Tier 2 of the Points Based System (PBS) and undertake a review of the codes of practice used under Tier 2.
The Call for Evidence is being issued to gather views and evidence from corporate partners (all parties with an interest in the MAC’s commission, both private and public sector employers, trade unions, representative bodies and private individuals) to help the MAC respond to the Government’s question.
The Government has asked that the MAC provide their advice by 30 September 2012. In order to have sufficient time to consider the evidence, responses must be received by 27 July 2012.
The briefing summary provides the key points at a glance for anyone interested in responding to the call for evidence or to find out more about the work of the MAC with regard to this issue.
