Some promising news regarding Brexit

June 26th June 2017

The Prime Minister has been speaking about her plans regarding the UK leaving the EU.

About three million EU citizens living in the UK would be allowed to stay after Brexit, Theresa May has proposed.

A new "UK settled status" would grant EU migrants who had lived in the UK for five years rights to stay and access health, education and other benefits.

Proposals were unveiled at a Brussels summit but are dependent on EU states guaranteeing Britons the same rights.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the plan "a good start", but Labour said it was "too little, too late".

Many EU citizens in the UK, and Britons living abroad, are worried about their status once Brexit happens. The UK's exit deadline is 30 March 2019.

Addressing other EU leaders at her first summit since the general election, the prime minister said she did not want anyone to have to leave or families to split up.

"No one will face a cliff edge" she said. "The UK's position represents a fair and serious offer, one aimed at giving as much certainty as possible to citizens who have settled in the UK, building careers and lives and contributing so much to our society.''
