Motion text

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.
