Future of Permanent Residence (PR)

John Kelly made this Freedom of Information request to Home Office

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was refused by Home Office.

Dear Home Office,

Can the Home Office please provide access to government documents [in your
possession] that discuss the situation that EU citizens who currently hold
Permanent Residence status in the UK (gained under the EEA/EU regulations) will find
themselves after Brexit takes place (i.e. after the 2 year negotiation period that starts when article 50 is invoked)?

I would like to find out what level of discussion has been going on within the Home
Office to date, for example, is there any idea about whether or not PR status will
continue as present, might it be changed to ILR or will PR cease to exist altogether?

Yours faithfully,

John Kelly

Dear Home Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Home Office's handling of my FOI request 'Future of Permanent Residence (PR)'. Reference: 41666.

I'm not happy that you are just withholding information which you have access to. This is not in the spirit of the FOI regulations and making excuses will allow the Home Office to reject requests arbitrarily. Please illustrate exactly where/how providing this info would 'prejudice to international relations'.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/f...

Yours faithfully,

John Kelly

Dear FOI Responses,

Thanks for your usual useless and delayed response. I fail to see how the question about whether or not the UK will continue to recognise PR after the UK leaves the EU. The answer is either yes or no.

I will be complaining to the ICO.

Yours sincerely,

John Kelly
