The majority of MPs voted to end the general right for nationals of European Union member states, European Economic Area states and Switzerland to enter and reside in the UK while retaining such rights for Irish citizens.

MPs were considering the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill.[1]

The motion supported by a majority of MPs in this vote was:

  • That the Bill be now read a Third time.

Majority support for the motion enabled the Bill to continue its path to becoming law.

Explanatory notes to the Bill[2] set out its purpose:

"The purpose of the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill (the Bill) is to end free movement of persons in UK law and make European Union (EU), other European Economic Area (EEA) and Swiss citizens, and their family members, subject to UK immigration controls."

the notes[2] also state:

"The Bill protects the status of Irish citizens in the UK when free movement rights end, a status which existed prior to the UK’s membership of the EU."

The Bill also contains provisions enabling UK Governments to make regulations to implement any new policies regarding co-ordination of social security.[2]

The Bill provides for regulations to be made setting out when it comes into force.
