Johnson says Britain should attract talented people from around the world

Tue, 29th Sep 2020 11:53

LONDON, Sept 29 (Reuters) - Prime Minister Boris Johnson
said on Tuesday he remained a supporter of attracting talented
people from around the world to Britain after the migrant
advisory committee reported shortages of workers in certain
occupations.

"I remain very, very open to this country being a beacon for
scientific geniuses who want to come here, talented people who
come and make their lives here. That's very, very important and
we're going to continue to do that," he told reporters.

"But obviously we also want to have control over our
immigration system ... and above all we want to ensure that
people growing up in this country get the opportunities and
skills that they need."
