Home Office advert just another example of mistreatment of EU citizens

September 8, 2019 9:00 AM

Christine JardineResponding to the reports that the Advertising Standards Authority have ruled that Home Office radio adverts for the EU Settled Status scheme were "misleading", Liberal Democrat Shadow Home Secretary Christine Jardine said "It's appalling the way EU citizens have been treated by the Tories since the referendum."

Christine added "We've already heard far too many cases of people not receiving the Settled Status they are entitled to. The Home Office putting out misleading adverts about how to apply only makes it worse. Under the Government's plans, anyone left without Settled Status by the end of 2020 will be exposed to the Tories' Hostile Environment, at risk of being evicted, detained and even deported. That cannot be allowed to happen. This is about people's lives and the Liberal Democrats demand better. That's why we are fighting to stop Brexit, save free movement and safeguard the rights of EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens in the EU."
