Government Defeated In House Of Lords Over EU Citizens Post-Brexit Amendment

The government has suffered a defeat in the Lords over the right of EU citizens lawfully residing in the UK after Brexit to have physical proof of their status.The cross-party amendment, proposed by Liberal Democrat peer Lord Oates, was backed by a majority of 41 peers.

In total, 270 peers voted for the measures and 229 voted against them.

Lord Oates said EU citizens covered by the settled status scheme should have the right to a physical form of proof of status instead of only the digital proof proposed by the government.
