Commenting on reports the Government is looking at proposals to introduce 'barista visas' for european citizens after Brexit, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said, "Barista visas sounds like a piece of political satire, but tragically this is actually being taken seriously by our Brexit government.
"It's time for Theresa May to wake up and smell the coffee. Our hospitals, care homes and housebuilding industry all rely on hard-working citizens from the EU.
"The Government must urgently guarantee the right of EU nationals to stay instead of coming up with these insulting proposals.
"We should also remember that any restrictions are likely to cut both ways. Future opportunities to live and work in Europe must not be sacrificed for the sake of a hard Brexit."
