Motion text

That this House calls on the Government immediately to grant Zambrano carers the right to remain in the UK; notes the 2012 ECJ judgement in the case Zambrano v Office national de l'emploi provided non-EU nationals with primary caring responsibilities (Zambrano carers) the right to reside in the Member State of which their dependent child or adult is a national; further notes that such rights derived from EU case law will be revocable through primary legislation following the Government's Great Repeal Bill; is concerned that current Zambrano carers or individuals in a similar position in the future may lose their right to remain in the UK; and demands that the Government now makes an immediate and unequivocal guarantee that Zambrano carers can remain in the UK with the same rights which they currently enjoy.
