Motion text

That this House recognises the contribution that the hundreds of thousands of European nationals living in the UK have made to the UK; further recognises that one of those European Nationals is Dundee’s Irena Jendrycha, one of the UK’s last Holocaust survivors, who moved to the UK aged four after her liberation from a German concentration camp; notes that Irena, like the hundreds of thousands of other European Nationals living in the UK, was forced to apply through the EU Settlement Scheme to secure her place in the UK; further notes that Irena, despite applying is still unaware of her status, which has caused her a lot of stress and anguish; and calls on the Government to resolve applications such as Irena’s as soon as possible and ensure that the status of those who are still unsure of their status in the UK will be treated with the dignity and respect that they deserve.
