BHA comments on the Prime Minister’s offer of ‘settled status’

Ufi Ibrahim, Chief Executive of the BHA, said: “The Prime Minister’s offer of ‘settled status’ will be a relief to the hundreds of thousands of eligible Europeans working in the hospitality and tourism industry. The BHA recently presented a plan to the government outlining how the industry would recruit more UK workers and to reduce reliance on European workers but with UK unemployment so low we will still need to recruit some EU nationals in the future. It is imperative that the government develops an evidence-based approach as the hospitality and tourism industry needs at least an extra 60,000 EU workers each year to keep businesses going and growing.”
