UK PM candidate Leadsom says post-Brexit right to stay will depend on work permits | Reuters

LONDON EU citizens coming to Britain once the country has left the European Union will need to obtain work permits if they wish to stay, Andrea Leadsom, one of two candidates vying to replace David Cameron as prime minister, said.

"Once we leave the EU we will be back in control of immigration. People going on holiday or travelling on business or to collaborate on science will be able to do that but the right to reside and the right to work here will be under work permits,” she told The Times newspaper.
