To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what discussions he has had with his counterparts in the EU on maintaining the rights of EU citizens resident in the UK and those of UK citizens resident in the EU in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a deal.

The Prime Minister has been clear that in the unlikely event that we reach March 2019 without agreeing a deal, we want EU citizens to stay and their rights will be protected. Ministers and Ambassadors have been engaging across the EU to stress that we would expect the same treatment for UK nationals in the EU, should we not reach a deal. Most recently Minister Robin Walker stressed this in his engagements in France and Spain.
