Brexit news latest: Spain to guarantee British residents’ rights in event of no-deal | London Evening Standard


Spain has announced it will guarantee British residents’ rights in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

The Spanish government said it would allow British residents to stay if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, giving them until the end of 2020 to apply for permanent residency and making it automatic for many.

With less than a month until Britain is due to leave the EU, Theresa May has yet to convince Parliament to back the Brexit deal she negotiated. That leaves open the possibility of an abrupt exit with no agreement.

Spain has one of the largest British expatriate communities in the EU and has been at pains to reassure them that their rights will be protected after Brexit.
