Progress made on citizens’ rights after Brexit, says Davis

The fourth round of Brexit talks has been “constructive”, with progress achieved on citizens’ rights, according to the UK’s secretary of state for exiting the European Union.

Speaking on 28 September, the closing date of the fourth round of Brexit talks in Brussels, David Davis said that Britain had agreed to give direct effect to the eventual withdrawal agreement with the EU by writing it into UK law. That will give EU citizens living in the UK more “certainty, clarity and stability”, he said. 

Davis also announced that EU citizens who have already been granted a permanent residency certificate in the UK will not have to go through the process again. More details on the UK-EU agreements on citizens’ rights are expected later today.
