Responding to news that the amount of British people applying for EU passports has spiked, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Ed Davey said:
"As we watch the Tories stumble through negotiations, the public are having to scramble to ensure that they retain their rights as EU nationals.
"Brexiters over-promised and it is now becoming clear that, particularly in the event of a no deal, there are far more benefits to remaining within the EU than leaving.
"A hard Brexit will make UK passports far less powerful. We must hold Brexiters to account- the people must have a final say on the deal and an opportunity to exit from Brexit.
