Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill — New Clause 4 — EU Settlement Scheme: Physical Documented Proof — 19 Oct 2020 at 21:15

The majority of MPs voted against giving European Economic Area and Swiss nationals and their families who have been granted pre-settled status or settled status under the arrangements to allow such nationals to continue living in the United Kingdom following withdrawal from the European Union the option of obtaining a document providing physical proof of their status.

MPs were considering the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill.[1][2]

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

  • That this House disagrees with Lords amendment 5

Lords amendment 5[3] stated:

  • Insert the following new Clause—
  • EU Settlement Scheme: physical documented proof
  • (1) The Secretary of State must issue physical proof confirming pre settled status or settled status to all EEA and Swiss nationals and their families who have been granted such status under the EU Settlement Scheme and who request such proof.
  • (2) No fee may be charged for issuing physical proof under this section.”
