Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls on EU partners to offer British citizens living in Europe assurances on residence

8th October 2019

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown calls on our EU partners to offer British citizens living in Europe the same security on residence as the UK has offered EU citizens living in the UK in the event of no deal.

Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP speaking in the House of Commons, October 2019

We have been extremely generous to 3 million EU citizens residing in this country at the point of no deal. Surely our EU partners could be equally generous in providing assurances for 1 million-odd of our citizens living in Europe. They have been threatened with having to reapply for residence next year, and they do not know where they stand.

My hon. Friend is right. As I mentioned earlier, some member states have been more generous than others. We respect the political constraints under which some Governments operate, but we want to work with them to guarantee the position of UK nationals.
