European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill — Clause 1 — EU Derived Rights and Potential to Aquire Residency Rights for EU and EEA Citizens — 13 Mar 2017 at 18:25
The majority of MPs voted against guaranteeing EU derived rights, and the potential to acquire residency rights, for EU and EEA citizens legally resident in the UK.
MPs were considering the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 1.
The rejected Lords amendment 1 sought to add the following additional subsection to clause one of the Bill:
“( ) Within three months of exercising the power under subsection (1), Ministers of the Crown must bring forward proposals to ensure that citizens of another European Union or European Economic Area country and their family members, who are legally resident in the United Kingdom on the day on which this Act is passed, continue to be treated in the same way with regards to their EU derived-rights and, in the case of residency, their potential to acquire such rights in the future.”
