Citizens’ Rights

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 4:00 pm on 5th March 2019.

Alert me about debates like this

“A Minister of the Crown must seek to secure at the earliest opportunity a joint UK-EU commitment to adopt part two of the Withdrawal Agreement on Citizens Rights, particularly as it affects people whose right of free movement has been removed by section 1 and schedule 1, and ensure its implementation prior to the UK exiting the European Union, or as soon as possible thereafter.”—

Brought up, and read the First time.

If I had had some foresight, I should maybe have withdrawn this new clause in advance. This is a version of the Costa amendment, which Alberto Costa very ably saw through Parliament last week. I congratulate him on achieving very widespread support.

Does the hon. Gentleman not wish to move that the clause be read a Second time?
