Brexit In an exclusive report, the Express claims a plan to prevent non-EU citizens being given the same benefits as UK citizens has been blocked. THE GOVERNMENT has sparked fury after blocking a bid to stop non-UK citizens being able to receive the same benefits and entitlements as British citizens.

Under the agreement, announced by David Davis and his European Union counterpart Michel Barnier, the UK will be able to sign trade agreements during a 21-month transition starting on March 29, 2019. However, Britain will be forced to give full rights to EU citizens moving to the country during that time, and the two sides still need to reach an agreement on Northern Ireland.
