Home Office Statement: EU citizens rights after Brexit

The Home Office have started to announce the process through which EU nationals will be able to apply for settled status following Brexit.

I have been long concerned that the Government doesn’t have the plans in place to give EU nationals – people who are our neighbours, friends and colleagues – the right to reside in the UK when we leave the EU.

There are a number of constituents who have contacted me where they find themselves in the situation where their partner is currently working in another EU nation and don’t know if they will fall within the 5 year residency test the Government is putting in place – but they may have only been away on work for a month.

I wanted to stress that the Government take this into account with their processes to ensure that families are not split up.
