Session Two: “Future Immigration Policy and What it Means for Horticulture”

17 Jul 2019

Labour availability is never far from a grower’s mind, particularly as Government consults on the future of immigration post-Brexit. This panel brings growers, labour providers and Defra together to discuss the needs of the horticulture sector for both permanent and seasonal labour, and how the post-Brexit immigration policy could impact this.
