New figures show 2.3 million EU citizens without Settled Status

January 5, 2020 4:00 PM

EU NHSThe latest EU Settlement Scheme Statistics, published toward the end of last year by the Home Office, show more than 140,000 EU citizens applied to live and work in the UK after Brexit in November compared to more than half a million submitted in October.

The Liberal Democrats have also raised concerns over the number of applicants receiving neither Settled or Pre-Settled Status. The figures show 361,900 people are still waiting for a decision, with 2,592,800 applications received but only 2,230,900 concluded.

Mayor Dave Hodgson said "Too many EU nationals are deeply anxious about their right to stay. Many of them fill vital roles in our health service, our schools and other important sectors. It's disgraceful for the government to leave them in legal limbo like this."
