The UK and the EU are both clear that we want to protect the broad range of rights and entitlements currently enjoyed by both EU citizens in the UK and UK nationals in the EU. The Prime Minister recently reiterated this in her open letter to EU citizens.

The Government is undertaking a wide range of analysis covering the entirety of the UK economy in order to support negotiations. This includes more than 50 sectors as well as cross-cutting areas.

In addition, I understand that a number of transport sector stakeholders have responded to the Migration Advisory Committee’s call for evidence on EEA workers in the UK labour market, which the Committee intends to publish in due course.
