APPG on Migration roundtable: ‘Economic growth in 2012: what role will migration policy play?’

Event date: Wednesday 18th January 2012

Organised by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Migration, the roundtable will be held in the Attlee Suite, Portcullis House on Wednesday, 18th January 2012 from 10 to 11.30am.

As the UK continues to face challenges in building economic growth in 2012, there will be an ongoing need for global talent, trade and investment. Can calls for further restrictions on immigration be balanced against the need to support growth in the UK? How can concerns about wider pressures on housing and public services be resolved? This meeting will explore the impact of immigration on the UK economy, its potential role in aiding recovery, and a policy balance which can support growth over the coming year and beyond.

Speakers invited to address the meeting include:

  • Karen Bradley MP, Conservative;
  • Chris Bryant MP, Shadow Immigration Minister;
  • Baroness Sharp, Liberal Democrats, Economic Affairs Sub-Committee;
  • Jonathan Portes, National Institute of Economic and Social Research;
  • Georges Lemaitre, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
  • Jack Dromey MP, Chair

Early confirmation of attendance would be appreciated. Please respond to Awale Olad at info@appgmigration.org.uk or call 020 7920 6426.
