Brexit – free movement – transition period

The media provides us with a blow-by-blow account of the British Governments’s negotiations with the EU about Brexit. From our point of view it is the negotiations about free movement rights for people that most command the attention.

Very recently the Government has offered the EU a significant concession about this. There will be a two-year “transition period” after Brexit during which EU migrants will be still be allowed to enter the UK and eventually settle. However, it looks as though rights for their non-EU family members may be restricted, and there may be an income requirement that they have to meet.

This is good news for some, but this subject seems to be something of a moving target. We will keep our readers informed about further significant developments.
