Editor's Comment 

Recent UK migration data from the ONS is worrying for industry. Having attended the annual EEF conference in London recently, it was plainly apparent that manufacturers are extremely concerned about the inability to recruit people with the right skills for their business. Jeremy Corbyn, who was the main guest speaker at the event, was highly applauded for his response to a question on skills, by telling the audience that skilled freedom of movement of labour was part of his vision after Brexit. Obviously playing to his audience he did however offer a coherent and practical solution to the skills problem. Dr Liam Fox, the International Trade Secretary who was also present earlier in the day, but did not take any questions much to the annoyance of many present, did not offer such a solution.
