Trade will suffer from a squeeze on migration
”The issue of migration in the Brexit discussion has focused on what migration means for the welfare system of the UK, security, and the overall economic influence of migration on the labour market, as well as public finances. However, a squeeze on migration could also negatively impact UK access to foreign and dynamic markets. This means that a Brexit could disrupt trade more than previously feared.
