Migrant workers group seeks assurances from government after Article 50 is triggered
A SOUTHPORT charity which helps migrant workers find their feet and a new life in the town, says more needs to be done to protect them in light of Article 50 being triggered.
Responding to the triggering of Article 50 which will eventually see the UK leave the European Union, Migrant Workers Sefton Community co-founder, Eileen Saunders, said she wants more clarity on the future of migrant workers.
She said: “Now that the Prime Minister has written to the European Union confirming the UK’s intention of leaving, the Government must ensure that protecting European Migrants are at the heart of its negotiations with Brussels.
“European Migrants in Southport, many of whom wait anxiously for the outcome of the exit deal, need immediate assurances that they can carry on with their lives as normal.
“Migrant Workers Sefton Community will continue to help and support existing and new migrant workers across the area on a range of issues and we are hopeful that Theresa May considers the fact that they are a key component to a number of service delivery areas right across the UK, including Southport”.
