LONDON May 3 Britain's intention in
negotiations over the post-Brexit status of European Union
nationals already living in the United Kingdom is to give them
very similar rights to those they enjoy now, Brexit minister
David Davis said on Wednesday.
Davis said it was important to quickly resolve the issue of
what would happen to EU nationals living in Britain and to
Britons living in other EU countries after the United Kingdom
exits the bloc in 2019 because uncertainty was causing those
"It is the intention that they will have a generous
settlement, pretty much exactly what they enjoy now, and our
British citizens abroad will do the same," Davis said during an
interview on BBC radio.
