We have been clear that securing the rights of citizens has always been our priority.

The Government has made it clear that we will unilaterally protect the rights of EU citizens in the UK in the event of no deal. The Prime Minister said, “You are our friends, our neighbours, our colleagues. We want you to stay.”

We will set out the details as soon as is practical, and we now urge the EU and all its member states to give UK nationals on the continent the same reassurances.
