By Aubrey Allegretti political reporter
EU nationals who arrive in Britain after Brexit will be treated the same as those from the rest of the world, ministers have reportedly decided.
The agreement came immediately after a presentation from the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC), which made the recommendation last week.Among the suggestions were lifting the cap on high-skilled migration and limiting the number of low-skilled workers allowed into Britain post-2019.

After the crunch meeting of ministers, a statement from Downing Street was released.It simply said: "Once free movement is brought to an end, the government will be able to introduce a new system which works in the best interests of the UK - including by helping to boost productivity."Multiple reports suggest the cabinet accepted the MAC's biggest recommendations.Employers will face a €1,000 per head annual immigration skills surcharge for employing migrants from the EU after Brexit, the Guardian reported.The fee is already faced by employers who take on non-EU migrants.
