Sajid Javid surprised by government position on EU citizens’ rights

The home secretary appeared surprised when told the prime minister is not supporting a Brexit amendment from a Tory backbencher.

Sajid Javid said there was "nothing" wrong with Alberto Costa's bid to protect the rights of UK citizens in the EU, and vice versa, and said it had government backing.

But the SNP's Stuart McDonald said the prime minster said on Tuesday she was opposed to this move.
