To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Callanan on 19 April, what questions were put to the UK ambassador to France by UK nationals at the most recent British Citizens Outreach Meeting held at the British Embassy in Paris; what answers were given; and whether they plan to extend the scope of their communications to UK citizens living in the EU on how those UK citizens will be affected by Brexit.

Since the referendum, the Government has been reaching out to UK nationals in the EU at meetings, events and through digital channels. Our embassies and Ambassadors have engaged extensively with UK nationals in their host countries and since January 2018, almost 10,000 UK nationals have attended over 40 face to face outreach events. Digital outreach has reached thousands more.

A wide range of questions were asked at this particular event in Paris. These related to the agreement on Citizens’ Rights and other matters related to our exit from the European Union.

The agreement on Citizens’ Rights, as set out in the Withdrawal Agreement text, provides certainty on the rights of UK nationals currently living in the EU.
