Responding to Sajid Javid’s comments that the Government will support Alberto Costa’s amendment on citizens’ rights, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesperson Ed Davey said:
“After being forced into one U-turn on the £65 fee for settled status last month and another on ring-fencing citizens’ rights in case of no-deal today, the Government should finally just admit that their whole approach is fundamentally flawed.
“These U-turns are welcome, but the spectacle of the Prime Minister saying one thing yesterday and the Home Secretary saying the opposite today shows just how much of a mess the Tories are making of Brexit.
“British citizens in Europe and EU citizens in the UK deserve better, and the Liberal Democrats demand better. That’s why we are leading the fight for a People’s Vote and an exit from Brexit.”
