LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May wants to settle the question of the rights of EU citizens living in Britain as a priority in talks to leave the European Union, but has not set a timetable for her migration policies, her spokesman said on Monday.
“I think in terms of the issue of EU citizens’ rights in the UK, the prime minister has been clear on wanting that to be an issue that is addressed as a priority once the negotiations with the other member states get under way,” the spokesman told reporters.
“The whole point of taking back control after leaving the EU is decisions about migration will be taken in this country, but in terms of speculation around dates, it is speculation.”
