‘Countdown to the Referendum’ is a series of free downloadable articles by Matrix that will explore a number of legal topics surrounding the UK referendum on 23 June 2016. Over the coming weeks, our experts at Matrix will cover the legal enforceability of the recent EU settlement, election law issues and the referendum process, claims of EU “over-regulation”, how Brexit will impact Scotland, and immigration and security issues. Authors will include Nick Armstrong, Claire Darwin, Sir Paul Jenkins QC (Hon), Gavin Millar QC, Aidan O’Neill QC, Nick Randall QC, Mark Summers QC, Rhodri Thompson QC, Professor Takis Tridimas and Angeline Welsh.
This week, Nick Armstrong looks at the implications of a British exit from the EU on arguably the biggest issue in the referendum debate: immigration and the free movement of persons to the UK. He considers the likelihood of Brexit making a difference to migrant numbers and what may happen after the vote.
