Free Movement From The EU To UK Will Stop In 2019

Free Movement From The EU To UK Will Stop In 2019

Free movement for EU citizens to Britain will end in March 2019, it's been announced.

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May has said that Europeans will no longer be able to freely move to Britain after the UK leaves the EU in less than two years.

Prior to this morning's official announcement, the Cabinet had been locked in days of confusion and splits over what would happen to free movement post-Brexit.

Chancellor Phillip Hammond said on Friday that there was a chance the UK's relationship with the EU could remain 'very similar' for at least three years after the UK formally leaves the EU in 2019. However, May's announcement today has made it very clear that will not be the case.

The spokesperson said today the proposals for a new immigration system will be announced and reviewed in 'due course', before adding: "It would be wrong to speculate on what these might look like or to suggest that free movement will continue as it is now."

Immigration was one of the key points of the Vote Leave faction's campaign in the 2015 EU referendum.
