Baroness Coussins Crossbench
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the recommendations in the report by the Migration Advisory Committee Review of the Shortage Occupation List: 2020, published on 29 September, that (1) teachers of modern foreign languages in secondary schools, and (2) interpreters, should be included on that list; and what plans they have to implement those recommendations.
Baroness Williams of Trafford The Minister of State, Home Department
The independent Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) published its report on the Shortage Occupation List on 29 September. This can be found here: www.gov.uk/government/publications/review-of-the-shortage-occupation-list-2020.
We are considering carefully its recommendations before commenting on whether specific occupations will be included and taking any final decisions.
