How will this in any way address the chronic labour shortages we have across the board? It's absolute madness! This government really needs to read the room better; we have 1.295 million vacancies and 1.2 million unemployed - how is a slack handful of "brightest and best" going to help us grow back to where we were pre-pandemic? GDP and exports have taken a massive hit as a result of Brexit and we're not able to trade our way out of this and 1.295 million vacancies means 1.295 lots of income tax and NI not collected and 1.295 million lots of money going back into the economy. What a shambles.
