THE Government looks set to “snub” a European Parliament hearing looking at the implications of Brexit for European Union (EU) citizens living in the UK.

Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt is due to address the hearing called ‘The situation and rights of EU citizens in the UK’ on Thursday along with Anne-Laure Donskoy, co-chair of the3million, a group which campaigns for the rights of EU citizens living in the UK.

An initial draft programme which was sent out last week stated that “representatives of the UK Home Office” would be part of the hearing which had been organised by Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee (LIBE) as well as the Petitions and the Employment and Social Affairs committees.

But an update of the programme does not include any reference to the UK representatives.
