Immigration: EU Nationals

Question for Home Office

UIN HL2080, tabled on 16 October 2017

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to enact restrictions on free movement for EU nationals prior to Brexit; and if so, how.

There are no plans to enact restrictions on free movement for EU citizens prior to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.

The Government has repeatedly made clear that until we leave the EU, EU citizens will continue to enjoy the same rights and status, and remain subject to the same residence requirements under EU law, as is currently the case.

This is set out in our position paper published on 26th June 2017, available at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/safeguarding-the-position-of-eu-citizens-in-the-uk-and-uk-nationals-in-the-eu
