The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) is a non-statutory, non-time limited, non-departmental public body established and funded by the Home Office.
The MAC provides advice to the government on a range of migration policy related issues. To date this has included impacts of migration, annual limits on, and the design of, Tiers 1 and 2 of the points-based system and transitional labour market access for nationals of new EU member states. The MAC’s advice also informs the compilation of the shortage occupation list for Tier 2.
The MAC’s core statement of purpose is:
- to deliver high quality evidence-based, economics focused, reports and policy advice on behalf of the MAC in accordance with the work plan set by the Government; and
- to help ensure that Government policy and strategy in relation to migration and employment is based on the best possible evidence and analysis.
Since its establishment in 2007 the MAC has played a leading role in ensuring that the case for migration into the UK is balanced alongside the needs of both the economy and society. The Committee has produced numerous reports since 2008, many of them of considerable length and complexity.
The full set of MAC reports is available on its website here
The MAC’s terms of reference are included in the Home Office Framework Document for the MAC, which is publicly available on the Committee’s website here.
