UNIVERSITY NEWS LAST UPDATED : 19 MAY 2020
Centre for Brexit Studies Senior Fellow Dr Steven McCabe has shared his thoughts and views on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the increase of people claiming unemployment benefits in the UK and if we could expect to see the number rise, and how long could it take to recover from this.
In a video shared today, Dr McCabe discussed the research from Resolution Foundation that claims young people are more likely to have lost work or seen their income drop because of Covid-19, and how this could impact young people long term.
The expert discussed the controversial immigration bill that was voted through the House of Commons this week, and what the bill says about what the UK could look post-EU. He also discussed the Government’s announcement that British farmers and carmakers will be protected under a post-Brexit trade regime, and if we could expect to see more industries guaranteed protection in the coming months.
