You can read the Library briefing paper, ‘The Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill 2017-19’, for more information on the Bill.
In summary, the Bill would repeal free movement, and other related EU-derived rights in UK primary and secondary legislation, and bring EU citizens under domestic immigration law. It would also make provision for Irish citizens and amend retained direct EU legislation on social security.
The Bill does not set out the future immigration system for EU citizens who move to the UK after Brexit. The future immigration system will be set out in the immigration rules.
