Chair comments on EU Settlement Scheme

11 October 2018

The Home Affairs Committee has published correspondence from Minister for Immigration, Rt Hon Caroline Nokes MP, relating to the EU Settlement Scheme.

Chair of the Home Affairs Committee, Rt Hon Yvette Cooper MP said:

"The Government is right to pilot this important technology. We look forward to asking further questions about the progress the Home Office is making, as it still isn’t clear when they will have tested the entire process, nor how the system will work at scale.

This is, obviously, still a small-scale pilot. The Committee’s biggest concerns about the scheme have been whether the Home Office has a smooth system that can work for millions of people at once, and also whether they will be able to reach everyone to make sure nobody loses their rights. We look forward to monitoring the process."
