Surely an agreement will be reached to ensure that this sector continues to flourish. Even many Brexiteers believe a system of permits will have to be developed for industries that have relied on predominantly Eastern European workers since the E.U. was expanded in the early 2000s. The fruit-picking industry is heavily lobbying lawmakers, because 95% of its seasonal workforce are from the E.U. However, there is the prospect they will not want to stay if the pound remains weak against the euro. It could prove more financially rewarding for them to exercise their free movement rights in other wealthy E.U. countries and then the UK supply would certainly suffer. It is imperative that these issues are addressed to the satisfaction of all EU member states.
