YOUNG Europeans should be able to work in Britain for two years after Brexit, Dominic Raab said last night. The Brexit Secretary called for a gap year-style scheme to allow EU citizens under 30 to live in the UK temporarily. Mr Raab suggested the programme could help protect close links between Britain and Europe after we leave the EU.

The current youth mobility scheme is open to visitors from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea or Taiwan. Applicants must be aged between 18 to 30, and are allowed to live and work in the UK for up to two years.

Mrs May is travelling to Brussels today for a European Council summit involving all 28 EU leaders. She will deliver a half-hour speech to them before dinner tonight - but will then leave the room so the remaining 27 can discuss Brexit without her. The PM will also hold separate meetings with Donald Tusk, Jean-Claude Juncker and Irish PM Leo Varadkar. On a crucial day in the Brexit process: EU … [Read more...] about Brexit deal latest – Theresa May set to confront EU leaders as they call for Brexit transition to be delayed for a YEAR
