RIBA responds to EU withdrawal agreement bill

RIBA President, Alan Jones, responds to EU withdrawal agreement bill.

RIBA President, Alan Jones, said:

“The Conservative manifesto rightly identified the UK’s architecture sector as world-leading. The UK government is aiming to complete its negotiation with the EU by the end of 2020, the outcome of which will shape the success of the profession at home and abroad. Mutual Recognition of Professional Qualifications (MRPQ) agreements with the EU and internationally are critical to ensure that the sector continues to attract international architects and trade successfully. The government must also ensure that the immigration system supports and does not hinder the UK’s status as a global hub for architecture.”
