Most of the UK nationals who wanted to exit from the EU are, however, happy with current levels of migration of talented workers from the Continent, says a new research.
At least 82 percent of Leave supporters would be pleased if the immigration levels of talented workers from the EU remained at current levels and 31 percent were, in fact, of the view that they would not oppose it if their numbers were increased.
Conducted by British Future, a think tank, it revealed that half of the non-Brexit supporters support a cut down in the low-skilled worker numbers belonging to the EU.
Sunder Katwala, Director of British Future, was quoted by ITV as saying that most people support a post-Brexit immigration system where there is a clear demarcation between skilled and low-skilled EU workers.
The plans of Theresa May government for a post-Brexit immigration system has come under the scanner since the referendum took place on June 2016. The Government will make public new details of its immigration policy in the autumn.
Figures published in August showed that net migration figures to the UK have touched their lowest level in the last three years, and the rate at which EU nationals are leaving the country has also risen.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) said the figures indicated that the Brexit vote may be indirectly affecting migration.
More than 3,600 people, who were surveyed in this study of the British Future study, were concerned with immigration numbers of low-skilled workers.
About 64 percent of the respondents, including half of the Remain voters, wanted the number of low-skilled workers arriving from the EU to be reduced.
Katwala said that that support was overwhelming, on both sides of the political and referendum divisions, for a system of immigration that takes into consideration the control demanded by the UK in the referendum to accommodate migrants that British economy would continue to require.
