London leaders urge for protection of EU citizen’s rights

The leaders of Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea and Wandsworth councils have urged the EU to take urgent action to safeguard the rights of EU nationals living in the capital.

Nickie Aiken, Elizabeth Campbell and Ravi Govinidia are establishing residency and passport advisory services for EU nationals in their authorities to offer further advice. The three boroughs currently home 80,000 EU nationals – equivalent to a town the size of Bath.

Writing to Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator on Brexit, the councils leaders write: “We were surprised and disappointed that a swift resolution of the issue was not reached over the summer. Based on the conversations we have with our resident EU nationals, your negotiating team’s delay in settling outstanding matters seems unnecessary.”
