The UK government’s cap on non-EU migrants has won fewer supporters than ministers hoped. Initially thought to be an obvious crowd-pleaser, it has been met with a torrent of criticism from businesses of all sizes and in all sectors, not to mention cabinet ministers themselves.
One of the things that the oil and gas was most concerned about was the inclusion of intra-company transfers (ICTs) in the cap. This would effectively limit the ability of companies to import their own talent from elsewhere into the UK.
Starting next week, Energy Source is bringing back its reader Q&A sessions. This is a chance for you to ask the bigwigs of the energy industry anything you could possibly want.

First up in the hotseat is Eon’s Sara Vaughan, their UK director of regulation and energy policy.
Eon is of course Germany’s biggest energy company, but it has a very high profile in the UK. Sara will be answering all your questions, from why it decided not to press ahead with Kingsnorth, to what is the future of UK nuclear power, to what carbon price is needed to stimulate green energy growth.
Send all your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of Friday 19th November.
