THE BBC approached Euro Weekly News yesterday (Friday) to discuss the Spanish government’s plan to give some 400,000 British expatriates residency status in the event of a no-deal Brexit.
The British broadcaster spoke to our reporter Joe Gerrard following news of the plan.
Madrid plans to give non-resident expatriates residency if Britain leaves the EU without a deal and if London makes similar guarantees for Spanish citizens living there.
Gerrard told the BBC the news was welcome for expatriates and that it would give them peace of mind as uncertainty over Brexit continues.
Madrid and London have both worked to ensure that many of the arrangements in place for British and Spanish citizens living in either country will stay the same regardless of the outcome of Brexit, Gerrard added.
