Today Anneliese wrote to the Home Secretary demanding urgent clarification for those Oxford residents concerned about their status, as the 30th June EUSS deadline approaches.
Following widespread concern in Oxford amongst community organisations, charities and constituents, Anneliese’s letter sought confirmation that the rights of those who apply to the EU Settlement Scheme in advance of the deadline will have their rights protected while they wait for a decision.
Anneliese sought further clarification regarding any steps that the Home Secretary has taken to mitigate the impacts of this situation and any inconveniences that applicants may face regarding employment and their right to reside given the lack of physical confirmation of their status in this time.
“It has been worrying to hear from many of my constituents, who are worried about their status pending a decision on their application.
“The government have failed to provide anything near adequate reassurance that the rights and protections of EUSS applicants will be protected following 30th June.
“They must urgently clarify the situation for EUSS applicants and take steps to address any issues this may be causing for EU Nationals and their families in Oxford.”
