EU Citizens have been told to wait until Brexit is done and “take their chances” after, by Scottish National Party MP Deirdre Brock.
MP Deirdre Brock also asked the Prime Minister if EU citizens are being used as “pawns” in the government’s game, during Prime Minister’s Question Time.
Theresa May gave a brief answer, saying she set out her position in her open letter to the EU.
The number of EU nationals applying for British citizenship in Bournemouth doubled in the wake of the Brexit vote, statistics revealed.
Bournemouth has a large population of EU citizens, with the second most populous ethnicity in the town being European nationals, as found in a consensus by Bournemouth Borough Council.
Bournemouth also has a thriving international college, and many of the students may be affected by the upcoming Brexit.
The advice from Deirdre Brock comes moments after Brexit secretary David Davis claimed that the government has not carried out any impact assessments of leaving the EU on the UK economy.
A “quantitative economic forecast of outcome” does not exist, he said.
“That is not there. We have not done that. What is there is the size of the industry, the employment and so on.”
