techUK CEO Comments on Prime Minister’s Speech on EU Citizens
Julian David welcomes commitment to guaranteeing rights, however more detail is necessary before any uncertainty can be addressed.
Commenting on the Prime Minister’s speech on the status of EU citizens in the UK, techUK CEO Julian David said:
“The tech sector welcomes the Prime Minister’s commitment to guaranteeing the rights of EU citizens living and working in the UK. International, diverse talent is the cornerstone of success for the tech sector.
The move to scrap the 85-page application form and transition to a simple digital process is a step in the right direction. During the period ahead, using technology to streamline processes and create smooth transitions will be critically important.
However, more may be needed to secure a deal that can be agreed with EU leaders and delivers real certainty to EU citizens in the U.K. We await further information regarding key issues such as the verification process, rights to pensions, family reunification and other key challenges remaining.”
