unstar this property answer text <p>The Secretary of State and I have regular discussions with Cabinet colleagues, including the Secretary of State for the Department for Work and Pensions, on their areas of responsibility where there is a link to the exit negotiations. <br><br>The reciprocal entitlements that will apply following the UK’s exit are subject to the wider negotiation on our future relationship with the EU. We will approach negotiations with the full intention of securing a deal that delivers the best possible outcome for the UK and its nationals wherever they are living. It goes without saying that we want a smooth and orderly exit from the EU, and will look at the best way to deliver that.<br><strong><br></strong></p> more like this
