Take your Brexit problems to the UK ambassador
By Alex Watkins MEMBERS of expat pressure group Eurocitizens are meeting the UK Ambassador Simon Manley on September 21 to present the concerns of UK residents in Spain and their queries about the future after Brexit.
Michael Harris from the group explained that they are doing this in cooperation with their BritishinEurope sister groups, Bremain and ECREU (Expats Citizens’ Rights in the EU).
“We would also like to inform Mr Manley of any adverse treatment as thirdcountry nationals that Britons may have received from Spanish officials. As you know, until March 21, 2019 we remain full EU citizens,” he explained.
“Please get in touch with us if anything that might be considered anomalous has happened to you, such as problems renewing residence certificates, S1 certificates, driving licences, problems with double taxation, etc.”
Mr Harris noted that for this to be effective, they will need the names of the people concerned and details of the incident.
He assured that all personal information will be treated in the strictest confidentiality.
“We are not suggesting in any way that there has been a deliberate change of Spanish government policy towards us,” emphasised Mr Harris.
“However, we feel that it is important to document any problems that do happen and pass them on to the UK authorities.”
