Christina Rees has this week joined the new Immigration Law and Policy APPG for its inaugural meeting in Parliament.
The group has been formed to consider the regulatory and legislative barriers faced by migrants to the UK and provide opportunities for MPs and immigration lawyers to discuss and work together on key areas of immigration law and policy.
Christina Rees, MP for Neath, said:
“I was delighted to join the inaugural meeting of the APPG on Immigration Law and Policy this week. Migrants are hugely important to the UK and – as has been clearer than ever during the Coronavirus pandemic – play a vital role in the delivery of so many of our key services. However, many migrants face considerable legislative and regulatory barriers and this group will help us identify solutions to those problems.
“It’s also so important to provide a space where we can break through some of the heated and emotive disinformation and – to be blunt – racism that so often mars debates around migration. I’m looking forward to working with Parliamentary colleagues to do this“.
