LONDON—The U.K. governing administration will curb the selection of small-skilled migrants allowed into the place as component of a broad overhaul of its immigration coverage pursuing Brexit.

After its departure from the European Union, the U.K. is ending the cost-free motion of migrants from the 27-member bloc. In its spot a new factors-based system—much like the types used in Australia and Canada—will be executed from the start out of next yr, screening foreign personnel on criteria which include fluency in English and income.
