EU Citizens And Permanent Residency

EDM number 713 in 2017-19, proposed by Edward Davey on 19/12/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Europe and Immigration.

That this House notes the vital contribution that EU citizens living in the UK make to our communities and to the UK economy; welcomes confirmation from Government that it will remove comprehensive sickness insurance (CSI) checks for those who are self-sufficient or studying and the genuine and effective work test under their proposals for settled status; is concerned that these rules continue to be applied inconsistently under the permanent residency system; highlights that this system has created great uncertainty for EU citizens who have made Britain their home; urges the Government therefore to also remove CSI checks and the genuine and effective work test from the permanent residency application procedure, including from the application form and guidance notes; and is convinced that this would create a simple process not only for the EU citizens but also for Home Office caseworkers.

This motion has been signed by a total of 10 MPs.
