WATCH: Kerry calls for guarantee for EU nationals in the UK

13 March 2017

In the months since the Brexit vote, it has been heartbreaking to meet constituents from other EU countries, often in tears, who are so worried by the uncertainty over the future for them and their families.

I raised this issue in the House of Commons on Thursday. EU nationals are part of the community here in Bristol East and many have made their lives here: they deserve a guarantee that they can stay - and so do the UK citizens living across the 27 other EU member states.

Having voted for such measures when the Government's two-clause Article 50 Bill was last before the House, I will be sure to do so again later tonight after the amendments added by the House of Lords have been considered by MPs.
