Assuming what the telegraph says is correct, then YES.  And it seems quite reasonable to me.  This whole issue of residence could have been settled by now if it wasn’t for the obstructiveness of the EU - particularly Germany - & their insistence on leaving it until Article 50 is triggered.

let the whiff whaff commence..

The Conservative government is likely to be defeated in the House of Lords over the issue of securing the rights of EU citizens living in the UK, despite a last minute plea from the home secretary, Amber Rudd.

Peers are lining up to support a Labour party amendment – which now has the formal backing of a Conservative, a Liberal Democrat and a crossbencher – calling on ministers to bring forward proposals to protect Europeans resident in Britain within three months of article 50 being triggered.

Guess for completion, we should add this here:

Hold onto your hats, here we go….

The UK’s Permanent Representative to the European Union, Sir Tim Barrow, has this morning informed the office of European Council President, Donald Tusk, of the UK’s intention to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on March 29, 2017.

Article 50 to be triggered on 29 March

Whoops-a-daisy, they clean forgot to tell anyone in Scotland they were going to do this though allegedly…

Michael Russell, who is leading the Scottish government’s Brexit talks with Westminster, said he only found out the date when it was reported by the BBC.

Mr Russell, who is a member of the Joint Ministerial Committee (JMC) on EU negotiations, tweeted: “Thank you @BBCNews for letting JMC members like me know that #Article50 is to be triggered next week”.

He added that the UK government “somehow forgot to inform us”.

Scottish government ‘not told’ about Article 50 date
