Prime Minister Theresa May recently signaled a reversal on a key Brexit policy regarding the future of EU migrants within the UK during the Brexit transition period, as reported by The Times in London.

Key highlights:

  • EU citizens in Britain during the Brexit transition period will be allowed to stay permanently under the current negotiating plan.
  • Three weeks ago May announced that EU residents staying in Britain after March of next year wouldn't have same rights as those who came earlier.
  • Policy reversal comes after Brussels warned that not letting EU citizens stay following transition breaches free-movement rules.
  • Hard-line Brexiteers are expected to be furious with the move, seeing it as another blow to the UK's sovereignty.
  • The overall position of Britain to be made clear following Prime Minister's speech next week.
  • EU heads in Brussels have already rejected May's 'three baskets' approach to post-Brexit economic regulations.
