I have to say this article makes me feel somewhat optimistic on behalf of all those local rural businesses, which rely so heavily on EU labour. It tells us:

Theresa May has suggested EU citizens could be given preferential rights to come to the UK after Brexit.

The prime minister insisted freedom of movement will end when Britain leaves the EU but said the issue of whether to give citizens of European countries special treatment has yet to be decided.

She also hardened her stance on dissent in her party, warning cabinet ministers they face being sacked if they speak out against the government’s Brexit policy.


It comes after the cabinet agreed a plan for Britain’s future relationship with the EU following a day of talks at the prime minister’s Chequers country retreat.

Under the proposals, freedom of movement between the UK and the EU will end but a “mobility framework” will be set up to make it easier for people to travel between the two, including for study and work.
