To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, whether he has received evidence of EU nationals facing discrimination in access to services in the UK as a result of the lack of clarity on their future legal status; and if he will make a statement.

There will be no change to the rights and status of EU nationals living in the UK, nor UK nationals living in the EU, while the UK remains in the EU. This means there will be no change to the ability of EU nationals to access services as they do now whilst the UK is an EU member state.

Our clear intention during negotiations is to ensure that EU citizens living in the UK before the specified date will continue to enjoy access to public services after we leave the EU.
