Theresa May ‘to REJECT call for migrants in Britain to be guaranteed EU rights for life’

22 Apr

Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, wants the demand as part of a hard-line negotiating position once the Brexit talks open in earnest later this year.

In return, he will say the same rights will apply to British citizens living in EU countries after Brexit.

But a senior Tory source today insisted Mrs May will refuse the demands if she is returned to government after the general election on June 8.

The source said: “The Prime Minister has said Brexit is about taking back control of our money and our laws. This demand from the EU is not going to happen.”
