Bishop of Southwark asks about British citizens resident in the EU

The Bishop of Southwark asked a question on representation for British Citizens resident in the EU during a debate on the EU Settlement scheme on 13th March 2023:

The Lord Bishop of Southwark: My Lords, does the Minister agree that a positive move to implement the High Court judgment may help in bilateral representations where British citizens find themselves disadvantaged by the application of the immigration laws in certain EU countries where residence was not hitherto a problem?

Lord Murray of Blidworth (Con): I entirely agree with the right reverend Prelate that clearly it helps that the Home Office works very closely with those in the Commission in relation to the respective rights of citizens in each other’s countries.
