An error has been identified in the written answer given on 21 June 2018.

The correct answer should have been:

The Government is determined to get the best deal for the UK in our negotiations to leave the EU, including for our world-leading food and farming industry. We have asked the Migration Advisory Committee for advice on the UK’s reliance on EU labour and they will help us shape immigration policy going forward.

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. We are building an application process which is fit for purpose, and we are engaging with stakeholders who represent EU citizens in the UK to discuss and understand their needs.

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