The Government announced in July 2006 that it would consult on establishing a Migration Advisory Committee to provide independent advice on migration, including on where shortage in skills and labour should be met by migration.
They are not selecting members yet. They are still discussing and gathering ideas. Based on the responses they get, they will select and form the committee by April 2007 if they decide to go ahead with it.
To get a wide range of views on whether the MAC is a good idea – and what should be its remit – a consultation paper has been produced.
New charging regime for Immigration and nationality fees
An aim of this consultation paper is to seek a wide range of views to inform the development of a new charging strategy.
It is intended that the new charging strategy would start to underpin prices in UKvisas and IND from April 2007 onwards.
How to contribute
For more details see the migration advisory committee consultation, which has all the details of what the role and purpose of MAC will be.
