to the Commission
Rule 138

 Subject:  EU nationals working cross-border in Ireland

EU nationals living in Ireland as long-term term residents who work across the British border in Ireland may be denied the right to work in the event of a no-deal Brexit. It is assumed that the Common Travel Area will allow Irish citizens to continue to live and work on both sides of the border. However, unless the Common Travel Area is extended to cover EU nationals living in Ireland they will not have comparable protection for their livelihoods.

How does the Commission view the situation faced by EU nationals that work cross-border in Ireland?

Has the Commission carried out any research on how many EU nationals would be affected in the event of a no-deal Brexit?

Has the Commission explored ways of supporting EU nationals who would be hurt by this situation?
