Labour debate on situation of EU citizens living in UK

Some constituents have written to me about Labour’s Opposition day debate. I like them have asked the Home Secretary to reassure all people currently here legally that they are welcome to stay as we leave the EU. Vote Leave made that clear recommendation in the campaign, and I am surprised Mrs May has not automatically done so.
I will not be voting against the Labour motion, which I would expect to carry the House without division.

    Mrs Leadsom did well yesterday. It is essential she stays the course. Please urge her to do so.

    Brxit-lite just isn’t good enough.

    That’s all very well but let’s not forget the British nationals many who voted Leave have been treated with a complete lack of respect. It’s amazing British nationals always seem to come last.

      Remain Voters get killed on streets and you talk about not being respected.
