The precise arrangements for controlling immigration after the UK leaves the EU have yet to be determined. However, as my Rt hon Friend, the Prime Minister, made clear in her Lancaster House speech on 17 January, the devolved administrations should be involved in the process of planning for the UK’s departure from the EU, and a Joint Ministerial Committee on EU negotiations has been established for this purpose.
