To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, which rights accruing from EU citizenship non-UK EU nationals will lose as a result of transitioning to the settled status outlined in his Department's policy document entitled, Safeguarding the position of EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU, published on 26 June 2017.

Until the UK’s exit, EU citizens resident here will continue to enjoy the rights they have under EU Treaties. After we leave the EU, we will create new rights in UK law for qualifying EU citizens which will be enforceable in the UK legal system. EU citizens that acquire settled status will have access to UK benefits, pensions, healthcare and other rights on the same basis as a comparable UK national.
