July 24, 2021

London: Older Europeans living in Britain are "particularly vulnerable" to losing their rights, after many failed to apply for the official post-Brexit immigration settlement scheme, a group of UK lawmakers warned Friday.

The House of Lords’ European Affairs Committee said in a lengthy report on British and European citizens’ rights in the new post-Brexit era that just 2 percent of applications to the UK scheme were from over-65s.
