The rights of Poles living in the UK are expected to be guaranteed by Prime Minister Theresa May.

On a recent visit to Poland’s capital of Warsaw the British PM said the only circumstances in which that would not be possible was if the rights of British citizens living across the EU were not guaranteed.

She said: “Last year, the UK was Poland’s second largest trading partner, and UK exports to Poland were worth more than £3 billion pounds. We should keep up our broader co-operation on science, innovation and energy.

“The U.K.’s exit from the EU should not weaken our relationship with Poland, indeed we should strengthen it,” she added.

Around 850,000 of Poland’s citizens currently live in the UK and prior to her stop she visited Slovakia’s capital Bratislava, which holds the EU’s rotating presidency.

During her speech Poles were assured that until Britain actually leaves the EU there will be no change to their rights.

She added: Leaving the EU presents an opportunity to strengthen our relations with countries around the world. And that is firmly what I intend to do.

“I am looking forward to developing the strongest possible relationship with Poland, to working with you to make Brexit a success, and to safeguarding the security of all our people.”
