MPs Back Immigration Bill & End of EU Free Movement

MPs have voted in favour of new legislation that will bring EU free movement to an end.

Passing the Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill is a critical phase in the government’s plan to introduce a new points-based immigration system for Britain from 2021.

The Bill was approved at third reading by 342 votes to 248, majority 94, meaning it has cleared all stages in the House of Commons. It will now pass to the House of Lords for consideration.

Under the Immigration Bill, the rights to EU citizens to come to the UK to live and work without restriction will be removed, and they will become subject to the same immigration controls as non-EEA nationals currently are.
