Via the nascent platform of
UK Citizens in the EU,EuroCitizens and its allies like Brexpats in Spain and Bremain have managed to get
the following amendment to the Article 50 bill introduced for debate in
the Lords by Lord Oates (LibDem). This was the result of mass lobbying of peers and shows how, by joining forces, UK citizens in the EU CAN shape the debate. Even if the amendment does not prosper , this means that our rights are being
debated and taken seriously.
“United Kingdom citizens in the European Union and EU citizens in the UK
must be a priority for Her Majesty’s Government in negotiations under
the process set out in Article 50 to reach an early agreement to confirm
the rights of EEA citizens and their families resident in the United
Kingdom, and United Kingdom citizens and their families resident in the
European Economic Area.
Minister of the Crown may agree to arrangements under Article 50 of the
Treaty on European Union for the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from
the European Union, taking account of the framework for the future
relationship, unless those arrangements permit and support the
(a) the existing rights of EEA citizens and their families resident in the United Kingdom at the date of withdrawal; and
existing rights of United Kingdom citizens and their families resident
in the European Economic Area at the date of withdrawal.”
