Urgent question on EU/British Citizens' rights

18 June 2019

MP for South Leicestershire, Alberto Costa asked an urgent question in the Commons today on EU/British Citizens' rights.

Exiting the EU Minister Robin Walker responded to the urgent question and said:

"I'd like to reaffirm that citizens' rights has been a priority throughout the negotiations and is an area that both the Government and this House takes extremely seriously."

Responding to the Government, Alberto Costa told MPs:

"It is inconceivable that a British Government - let alone a Conservative Government - could allow the rights of British nationals working, living, studying in the EU to vaporise overnight on 31 October."
