Status Of EU Nationals In The UK

EDM number 291 in 2016-17, proposed by Greg Mulholland on 05/07/2016.
Categorised under the topics of EU law and treaties, Immigration and Nationality.

That this House expresses strong concern that the Government has not guaranteed the rights of EU nationals to stay in the UK after the country leaves the EU; notes that there are three million EU nationals currently living, working or studying in the UK; further notes that many of them have developed strong family and business ties to the UK; believes that a refusal from the Government to give all these people a guarantee about their long-term status throws their lives into great uncertainty; further believes that all these EU citizens, including families and children, should not be used as bargaining chips to negotiate the terms of a deal under which Britain will leave the EU; urges the Government to consider the strong implications for families, public services and the economy if many EU nationals start to or are forced to leave the UK; and calls on the Government to remove this uncertainty, recognise the huge contribution that EU nationals have made to Britain and, in line with the cross-party consensus, immediately guarantee the rights of all EU nationals already in the UK.

This motion has been signed by a total of 35 MPs.
