To ask Her Majesty's Government how the UK leaving the EU will change the rights, responsibilities and status of European citizens resident in the UK with granted settled status.

The Home Office has introduced the EU Settlement Scheme to enable all qualifying EEA and Swiss citizens, and their family members, to obtain an immigration status in the UK.

Obtaining settled status (indefinite leave to remain) under the scheme will ensure EEA and Swiss citizens and their family members have no immigration conditions placed on their residence in the UK, provided they remain resident here. This status will protect, and enable them to demonstrate, their rights to work, education, healthcare, and access to benefits and public services in the UK in line with UK nationals. Where individuals have obtained settled status before the UK leaves the EU, that immigration status will continue to have effect and will not change when we leave.
