If the laminate has been fitted correctly, it would have an underlay which covers for any movement.
Installing the skirting 1mm away from the floor would be a real mission, considering that I never, ever found a perfectly straight floor, so naturally there will be gaps under the skirting, sometimes even 5mm.
Even with a pool table levelled floor, there would be no need to waste time on a 1mm gap.
