Top Tory Brexiteer Sir Bill Cash has said that after Brexit, EU graduates who studied in Britain should not be automatically granted the right of residency.
There were 127,440 EU citizens studying at UK universities between 2015-2016.
He made the comment at the ‘Brexit Red Lines’ event in Parliament on Thursday. The event was organised by The Bow Group, the UK’s oldest conservative think tank. Sir Bill said that residency rights of EU graduates should not be offered during Brexit negotiations.
He added that he would not expect any UK citizen studying in a foreign country to be given the automatic right to stay at the end of their studies.
