Brexit Task Force

Today I met with Michel Barnier together with my colleagues from the EU Citizens Taskforce to discuss the rights of UK citizens in the EU27 and EU27 citizens in the UK. In the meeting Mr Barnier explained how, as Brexit negotiator, citizens have been one of his main concerns, alongside the issue of Northern Ireland and the financial settlement.

Here in the Parliament, I continue to push for citizens' rights to be the main priority in the Brexit negotiations, including through the adoption in Parliament resolutions, and I will continue to do so throughout the entire process of negotiations until there is an acceptable agreement that guarantees citizens' rights. If you would like to receive updates about citizens' rights in the Brexit negotiations and the work that is being done on this topic in the European Parliament, please send an email to
