Holly Lynch comments on ISM report on visa system
Holly Lynch MP, Labour’s Shadow Immigration Minister, commenting on the ISM report calling for an overhaul of the visa system for musicians visiting the UK from outside the EEA, said:
“This report highlights again how the Government has failed to think through the detail on immigration.
“The UK music industry suffers when visiting international performers struggle to secure the approval they need at short notice.
“The Government must look to ensure that we are not turning international talent away at our borders, given the invaluable economic and cultural contributions performers make.”
