Today the Government has issued a statement to confirm that there has been no change to the rights and status of EU nationals in the UK, and UK nationals in the EU as a result of the referendum.
“There has been no change to the rights and status of EU nationals in the UK, and UK nationals in the EU, as a result of the referendum. The decision about when to trigger Article 50 and start the formal process of leaving the EU will be for the new Prime Minister. The UK remains a member of the EU throughout this process, and until Article 50 negotiations have concluded.
“When we do leave the EU, we fully expect that the legal status of EU nationals living in the UK, and that of UK nationals in EU member states, will be properly protected.
“The government recognises and values the important contribution made by EU and other non-UK citizens who work, study and live in the UK.”
