>if we must remove ourselves from so much free movement of labour, those of us left will earn more as a result

But there will still be competition from all those other Brits driving down wages.

The obvious way to boost IT salaries is to reduce the number of tech graduates. If we close all the science and engineering depts except say Imperial and have a quota of say 20 graduates/year. Then those few graduates will see massive salary rises (although they may have to do a lot of overtime)
