TODAY: 2,000 EU nationals invited to meeting in Perth to discuss Brexit

EU nationals across Perth and Kinross will attend a public meeting in Perth this week in an attempt to tackle ongoing Brexit uncertainty.

Senior SNP politicians have invited the more than 2,000 EU nationals within their constituencies to the meeting.

The UK Government expects EU nationals to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme to continue living in the UK.

The Home Office is providing £9 million funding to help organisations provide advice about the scheme.

The meeting comes after the UK Government announced it plans to scrap the £65 fee EU citizens were to pay to secure the right to continue living in the UK after Brexit.

The Perth meeting, which takes place at the Soutar Theatre at 7pm on Thursday, will seek to offer guidance, support and reassurance to EU nationals on the process.
