Motion text

That this House believes that leaving the EU gives the UK a unique opportunity to restore its national identity; supports the Government's announcement that passports will return to their traditional, iconic blue and gold design; and encourages the Government to offer free replacements to the first 10,000 British applicants.

After a motion has been tabled, other Members can table amendments to it. Amendments to this motion are shown below.

leave out from 'Eu' to end and insert 'means the loss of UK citizens' ability to live, work, love, travel and study freely across 27 other EU member states; further believes that having a blue and gold passport will not make up for the loss of freedoms and rights associated with holding an EU passport; is concerned that those who choose to keep these freedoms and citizenship rights face having them taken away against their will in the event that the UK leaves the EU; and calls on the Government to allow British people to individually opt-in and retain their EU citizenship if the UK leaves the EU.'.
