Geoffrey Clifton-Brown questions the PM on rights of EU citizens living in UK and vice versa

6th February 2017
Following the Prime Minister's statement on the European Council meeting in Malta, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown asks the PM if she thinks we will be able to negotiate reciprocal rights for EU citizens living here and for British citizens in Europe sooner than the two-limit set by Article 50.

Does my right hon. Friend think that, in her discussions with our 27 EU partners, we will be able to negotiate a reciprocal right for EU citizens living here and for British citizens living abroad sooner than the two-year limit set by article 50?

What I want to see is an agreement about the position of EU citizens and UK citizens at an early part of the negotiations, so that we can give them that reassurance up front and so that it will not be necessary to keep that agreement with the other 27 member states as part of the final deal. We need to have that up front at an early stage, so that we can give people the reassurance that they not only need but deserve.
