To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate his Department has made of the number of EU citizens who will be granted settled status to in the first year of that scheme’s operation.

The EU Settlement Scheme will be a simple and streamlined application process, drawing on existing government data and processes to minimise the administrative burden on applicants. The application process is being built around a presumption to grant rather than refuse, so we expect the majority of the current 3.4m resident EU citizens who will be eligible to apply, to do so and to be granted status. We will launch the Scheme by the end of the year and EU citizens will have plenty of time to apply before the deadline of June 2021.

We will be providing further detail on the scheme in due course.
