Denmark, known for hardline immigration stance, vows to protect British immigrants

0

COPENHAGEN – Denmark’s government last week proposed a law that will temporarily pass on virtually all rights for the 18,000 British citizens living in Denmark should Britain leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement.

“There is of course still hope that the Britons will approve the agreement negotiated by the UK government with the EU,” Integration Minister Inger Stojberg said in a statement.

She said the new law would ensure that UK citizens currently living in Denmark would not “get tangled up” in case of a no-deal scenario.

The new law, which still needs to be approved by a majority in the parliament, is expected to take effect on March 30, the day after Britain leaves the bloc.Reuters
