Building A New Scotland: Migration to Scotland after Independence

  • Submitted by: Jamie Hepburn, Cumbernauld and Kilsyth, Scottish National Party.
  • Date lodged: Monday, 13 November 2023
  • Motion reference: S6M-11237
  • Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Tuesday, 14 November 2023

That the Parliament notes that Scotland’s population growth has relied on migration into Scotland; welcomes the fact that there are currently more people choosing to move to Scotland from the rest of the UK than those moving in the opposite direction; recognises the benefits of EU freedom of movement, which was lost as a result of Brexit; agrees that a decline in the working population would damage Scotland’s public services and economy; deplores the UK Government’s hostile rhetoric towards migrants, and welcomes the proposals in the Scottish Government paper, Migration to Scotland after independence, for a humane migration system tailored to Scotland’s needs.
