Plea for chil­dren of EU cit­i­zens

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

The chil­dren of EU cit­i­zens should be ex­empt from pay­ing any post-Brexit reg­is­tra­tion costs, the Scot­tish Govern­ment has said.

Ex­ter­nal Af­fairs Sec­re­tary Fiona Hys­lop called on the UK Govern­ment to com­mit to not im­pos­ing reg­is­tra­tion fees for the 35,000 chil­dren of EU fam­i­lies un­der the age of 16 cur­rently liv­ing in Scot­land.

Ms Hys­lop has al­ready writ­ten to Home Sec­re­tary Sa­jid Javid urg­ing him to recog­nise Scot­land’s “unique” mi­gra­tion needs.
