star this property answer text <p>The Government is considering a range of options for the immigration system for EU citizens after the UK leaves the EU. Since the Referendum result last year, Ministers have been undertaking an extensive programme of engagement and evidence gathering with all interested parties including the Devolved Administrations, businesses, educational institutions and many others. Most recently, I discussed the recent agreement on citizens’ rights and next steps on the future immigration arrangements at the Joint Ministerial Committee (European Negotiations) on 12 December 2017. Home Office officials also have frequent meetings with their colleagues in the Devolved Administrations, including the Scottish Government.</p><p>On 27 July, the Government commissioned the independent Migration Advisory Committee to advise on current patterns of EU migration across all sectors, and the role of migration in the wider economy and society. This will be an important element in our decisions about future immigration arrangements that work for all parts of the UK.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Immigration (European Economic Area) Regulations 2016, which implement EU free movement law in the UK, already recognise same-sex marriages and unmarried partnerships. This will be replicated in the eligibility rules for the EU Exit Settlement Scheme for those EU citizens and their family members arriving before the end of the implementation period. Existing non-EU immigration rules also recognise same-sex marriages and unmarried partnerships.</p><p>In terms of the post-Brexit immigration regime, we are considering the options for our future immigration system carefully. We are building a comprehensive picture of the needs and interests of all parts of the UK and intend to develop a system which works in the national interest. In doing so, we will provide for equal treatment of same-sex couples, as we do now and in line with our obligations under the Equalities Act 2010.</p> more like this
