Responding to Conservative claims that it would be "unfair" to allow EU citizens to vote in a People's Vote, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary, Tom Brake said:
"The Conservatives want to deny EU citizens yet another right: the right to decide their future in the UK. They have been perfectly happy to use EU citizens’ rights as a political football for years yet refuse to give them a say in a potential People's Vote. It's hardly surprising from the party responsible for the Windrush scandal.
"Meanwhile, Labour are hypocritically pandering to EU citizens, telling them they would support their right to vote in a future referendum, while at the same time supporting Brexit. They have shown once again they can't be trusted.
"A Liberal Democrat government will stop Brexit. We will make sure EU citizens continue to feel welcome in their home: the UK. We will continue to protect their rights and give them their voice in any future People's Vote."
