UK considering help for Britons in EU after no-deal Brexit

United Kingdom's Brexit department published on Thursday a paper outlining what kind of assistance it intends to provide to its nationals living in the European Union in the case of a no deal Brexit. According to Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, the UK government is considering improved access to healthcare, education, benefits and housing to nationals unable to resume their lives in the EU following a no-deal Brexit.

"If UK nationals in the EU were unable to continue to live their lives in the EU as they do now in a no deal scenario and returned to the UK to live, there are a number of steps the government would consider to address concerns that they have raised," Barclay said in a written ministerial statement. "This includes access to healthcare, education, benefits, and housing. We recognise that these would be an important part of a transition back to life in the UK."
