To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, with reference to paragraph 6 of the Government's policy paper entitled, Safeguarding the position of EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU, published on 26 June 2017, whether EU family dependents of UK citizens who return to the UK after the specified date will be subject to the immigration rules in respect of their family members; and whether there will be different rules in relation to EU and non-EU national family members.

As set out in the Government policy paper of 26 June Safeguarding the position of EU citizens living in the UK and UK nationals living in the EU, we want to provide as much certainty as possible to the three million EU citizens in the UK and around one million UK nationals in the EU, and for their lives to continue broadly as now. The precise rules around family reunion will be a matter for negotiations.
