[UK] Campaigners call for changes to EU Settlement scheme in light of coronavirus pandemic


Up to 30 charities and organisations have written to home secretary Priti Patel calling for a number of amendments on Tuesday - a year exactly until the scheme ends.

Under current arrangements, EU citizens have been told to apply by June if they wish to continue living and working in Britain.The letter said: “We are concerned that the government has not taken appropriate steps or made the adequate adjustments to the EUSS necessary to protect EU citizens and family members from Covid-19. We believe the Home Office must work with other government departments to resolve the following issues as a matter of urgency.”
