UK's post-Brexit immigration system will not include net migration target

Updated: 19-12-2018 14:05 IST
Britain's interior minister Sajid Javid said the government's post-Brexit immigration plans will not include a specific target to reduce annual net migration.

The government previously had a longstanding target to reduce net migration to below 100,000 a year.

"We remain committed to our objective of bringing net migration down," Javid told BBC Radio. "We're not abandoning any pledge. We've committed ourselves to bringing net migration to sustainable levels."
