Stakeholder engagement is a central element of our Department’s activities as we leave the EU. Ministers and officials from across Government have carried out extensive engagement with stakeholders, including on issues relating to citizens’ rights.

We have delivered a deal on citizens’ rights that will provide EU citizens certainty about their rights going forward, and it means those living here before the UK’s withdrawal can stay.

The Withdrawal Bill aims to maximise certainty for individuals and businesses about their legal rights and obligations as we leave the EU, and provides the basis for a smooth and orderly exit.
