Hounslow Council Leader, Councillor Steve Curran, has joined other Labour Leaders of London boroughs, to urge the Prime Minister to immediately guarantee the rights of people originally from other countries in the European Union living in the UK. 

Almost eighteen months since the UK voted to leave the European Union, the Government is yet to guarantee that people from other countries in the European Union will be able to remain in the country after Brexit. 

This week, a letter was sent to the Prime Minister, Theresa May, urging her to guarantee the full rights of people originally from other countries in the European Union currently living in the UK. The letter was signed by all 21 Labour Leaders of London boroughs. 

Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “Here in Hounslow, we have a very vibrant and culturally diverse borough of which we are extremely proud of. 

“We are also a welcoming borough and many of our residents have made their home here for themselves and their families or have chosen Hounslow as the place in which to run their business. All of them play a part in making our borough the fantastic place it is.

“We call on the Prime Minister, Theresa May, to guarantee the rights of people from other countries in the European Union that are living in the UK, so we can continue to have a borough that is rich in diversity and equality for generations to come.”
