All the MPs who voted against guaranteeing the rights of EU nationals

MPs have rejected an amendment by the House of Lords to guarantee the rights of European Union (EU) nationals ahead of Brexit negotiations.

They were asked to overturn two amendments made by peers to the Government’s EU Notification of Withdrawal Bill, which gives Theresa May the power to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

The Lords amendment was designed to force the Government to publish plans for guaranteeing the rights of EU nationals living in the UK within three months of triggering the mechanism.
