Evening Standard: Theresa May must guarantee rights of EU citizens to remain in UK, MPs say


Theresa May is facing renewed pressure from MPs to guarantee the rights of more than three million EU citizens to remain in the UK.

A cross-party committee of MPs, including Michael Gove and other Tory Brexit campaigners, have called on the Prime Minister to guarantee the future rights of EU nationals living in Britain.

In a parliamentary report published on Sunday, the committee said that EU citizens should not be used as “bargaining chips” in negotiations over Brexit.

Mr Gove, the co-chairman of the official Vote Leave campaign, is one of several pro-Brexit Conservative MPs on The Commons Exiting the EU Committee behind the report.


If even pro-Brexit MPs such as Michael Gove think that the rights of EU migrants need to be guaranteed, the prime minister really needs to listen.
