ALMR highlights the importance of immigration policy to the hospitality sector

Nicholls said operators will need assurances that the system is based on notification.

Following the speech of the Prime Minister speech, ALMR Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said, “We welcome assurances that robust outcomes, not time constraints, will drive trade negotiations, but eating and drinking out businesses will need swift clarity around the Prime Minister’s comments on immigration registration. It is vital that costs are kept to a minimum, and hospitality operators will need assurances that any system is based on notification, not registration.

“Today’s statement included a commitment to minimise disruption for businesses. With food inflation and the cost of living high and rising, our sector’s heavy reliance on foreign workers means that we need the confidence to be able to plan and continue growth for the benefit of our businesses, workers and the UK’s economy. Disruptions and further costs simply aren’t tenable for many venues.”
