Brexit: ‘Britons just as welcome’ Minister pledges support, teacher jobs safeguarded by OLIVER ROWLAND FRANCE has reassured British residents that they are still welcome here and official guidelines have been issued in the run-up to Brexit. The guidelines – in six sections: driving licences, integration, travel, residency, nationality and elections – cover both a deal and no-deal. They confirm that residency cards will be obligatory. We can provide a translation (see page 4). This comes as French MPs passed a special law enabling measures to be brought in quickly to cope with a no-deal including for ports, flights, Eurostar travel and Britons whose residency rights would, in theory, be lost overnight. France’s Europe Minister Nathalie Loiseau said: “I want to tell British people living here

that they will be welcome tomorrow as they are today. Many of them could not take part in the referendum that led to Brexit. They must not become hostages of a no-deal... “We commit ourselves without ambiguity to do everything to ensure a situation comparable to that which they would have benefited from in the context of the deal.” Mrs Loiseau also said British teachers and other fonctionnaires could keep their status.
