The UK government has now published a detailed proposal on the future rights of EU citizens living in the UK before the UK leaves the EU. The main elements are summarised in the link below. The UK is of course negotiating with the European Union, which has taken a different view of those who should be covered by any agreement, which rights should be protected in the future and how they should be enforced. For more details on the European Union proposals, see Briefing Paper MW 412. This paper summarises the UK proposal. The final agreement may well be different so this document should not be read as advice as to what EU citizens should do next.
