Thousands of EU citizens will have to apply to a settlement scheme to remain in Renfrewshire. Border chiefs will force those wishing to stay to apply for ‘settled’ status or face ejection under Brexit. PAISLEY DAILY EXPRESS: Live news as it happens Around 3,500 people living in the region were born in European countries. Maike Bohn, director of communications at The Three Million, a forum for EU citizens living in the UK, has slammed the system. She said: “Vote Leave said the new status would be automatic. “Now EU citizens are faced with a system that forces them to apply and to pay to stay. “In addition, this system is built for people with perfect digital tax records, and we are very concerned about EU citizens who don’t fit this stereotype and haven’t got a seamless record. “The message this sends to EU citizens is that the contributions they have made over the last decades are meaningless. “Having to reapply is proving … [Read more...] about EU citizens living in Renfrewshire will have to apply to stay

Thousands of European Union citizens living in Derby will have to apply to the EU settlement scheme to remain in the UK. Following the Brexit referendum result the government announced that all EU citizens - even if married to a British citizen - would have to apply to carry on living and working in the UK beyond 30 June 2021. But commentators have said that the settlement scheme is sending a message to EU citizens that their contributions to the UK are “meaningless”. There are currently 257,000 people living in Derby of which 16,000 are EU citizens, according to the latest figures from the Office for National Statistics. All 16,000 will have to apply for either settled or pre-settled status under the rules of the scheme unless they are Irish citizens or have indefinite leave to remain in the country. A significant number are likely to be Irish and therefore exempt.

Theresa May has issued her strongest reassurance to EU citizens living in the UK yet saying that the government will guarantee their right to stay. Mrs May told the 3 million EU citizens residing in the country they could stay - even if the EU does not reciprocate and allow UK citizens to stay. The Prime Minister said: "First there are over 3 million EU citizens living in the UK who will be understandably worried about what the outcome of yesterday’s summit means for their future. "In the event of no deal, your rights will be protected. You are our friends, neighbours and colleagues. We want you to stay." Previously the government has been accused of using EU citizens as a bargaining chip for failing to make such a promise when Article 50 was triggered. But today, after her humiliating rebuff from EU leaders in Salzburg, she made the promise without any guarantees in place. Standing at a lectern before two Union flags in 10 Downing Street, a steely-faced Mrs May said the EU's … [Read more...] about Theresa May says UK will unilaterally guarantee EU citizens’ right to stay
