Watch MPs defending an amendment asking for Comprehensive Sickness Insurance (CSI) to be removed as a requirement when EU citizens apply for citizenship in the UK.


First published: December 2021.


I want to express our gratitude for everyone who wrote to their MP ahead of the debate on the Nationality and Borders Bill in Parliament last week regarding the amendment NC9 tabled by Dame Meg Hillier MP on granting a physical proof of status to EU citizens in the UK.


Stuart McDonald MP also tabled an amendment asking for Comprehensive Sickness Insurance (CSI) to be removed as a requirement when EU citizens apply for citizenship.

Although these amendments were not put to a vote and did not make it into the bill, your emails and letters to MPs helped prioritise these issues and the Government responded that they are looking into these issues again, including specifically referencing the3million’s physical documents proposals.




And finally, watch Kevin Foster MP’s response to the CSI amendment:


We look forward to the next stage in the House of Lords in the New Year, with hopefully some amendments to probe for more details on these Government responses.

We will continue to stand up and get our voices heard. Watch this space.
