Together with CIfA, FAME have responded to a consultation request from the All Party Parliamentary Group for Excellence in the Built Environment. The focus was future skills needs in the construction industry and the built environment professions and our focus was to draw attention to the shortage of skills in UK archaeology and the importance of continued access, in one form or another, to archaeologists from EU countries.

As part of our evidence we presented the results of our recent FAME survey (read the results here) which showed that over 85% of respondents had employed EU staff in the past and saw continued access to EU staff as important for the future.
