The Government has conceded their plans for EU citizens are unfair and unworkable
12 Dec 2017Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, commenting on the Government admitting that the current system for EU citizens applying for permanent residency in the UK is unfit, said: “Labour consistently argued that the Government’s plans were unfair and unworkable. Now the government has conceded as much.
"But a lot of uncertainty remains, which affects both UK citizens living in the EU as well as EU citizens here. The Government needs to give clarity on what it has agreed, and to stick to its word. Labour has always argued for guaranteed rights for UK and EU citizens.”
