06 Jun Brexit: settled status and citizens’ rights – what has been agreed?
On 19 March the European Union and the UK published the impressively named Draft Agreement on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community. In other words, a draft Brexit divorce agreement.
This blog post will focus on Part Two of the “Draft Agreement” (the shortened, and less intimidating, term I’m going to use) which concerns the protection of EU citizens in the UK and reciprocal rights for UK nationals living in the EU. All of this text is highlighted in green in the document issued by the negotiating teams, meaning that it has been fully agreed.
