An internal campaign for free movement is trying to put pressure on Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Indeed even some of his close colleagues are also putting pressure on the leader to commit to keeping the current freedom of movement privileges for EU citizens after Brexit is completed in 2019. The leader has kept his cards close to his chest so far on Labour's plans for free movement, but his party is keen on seeing these rights retained under a Labour government.
The veteran MP was widely lambasted after the referendum campaign for not being a strong voice on remaining in the EU. Many people see the Labour leader as a republican and not naturally a supporter of the Union. The leader insists that he did support Britain remaining in the EU, though it is unclear whether that is his own opinion or a position that he's had to adopt to try and bring the party together under his stewardship.
Whilst the Labour leader's position remains somewhat unclear, his opponent in the House of Commons Prime Minister Theresa May seems absolutely committed to ending freedom of movement. Though May herself is also trying to desperately keep some leadership over her party after her disastrous general election result, which has all but guaranteed that she will not see out her full term as Prime Minister. The infighting below her is a show that she is not in charge of the party and may not even make it as far as the party conference.
The issue of freedom of movement is an emotive one, it divides opinion and is one of the big reasons that Britain voted to leave the European Union in the first place. The big issues on the table for Britain's Brexit committee and EU negotiators is how to work around this obstacle, which is likely to be by far the most contentious of the agreements needed for the UK to make a success of going it alone.
The Labour group set up to try and set Labour's direction on the issue, Labour Campaign for Free Movement has been pushed by well-regarded MP's like David Lammy has made EU freedom of movement top of its priority list. In recent months Jeremy Corbyn has done a significantly better job of keeping the party together on tough issues, but this may be a sterner test of his ability to concede on his personal beliefs for the wider good of the party; he showed during the election campaign that he can do this with contentious issues such as Trident. Whilst he himself is at the forefront of campaigning for global nuclear disarmament he made concessions that meant that a Labour government would replace the ageing nuclear missile deterrent. Many hope that he can now be swayed on freedom of movement. This would give Labour a clear difference if the country were to head to the polls again and would keep much of his party in line.

It's a shame that you dont have an 'Excellent' star rating on here, as my experience with Reiss Edwards is nothing short of an excellent rating. They handled my application for an Indefinite Leave to remain in April 2014 and did my husband's one very recently including my daughter. Every time i have approached them, they have continued to treat me with courtesy, respect and patience. Amar was indeed a very thorough and professional gentleman. He is very knowledgeable, corporative and engaging. He responded to my emails, calls and enquiries promptly. He was always reassuring. I could not have asked for a better Immigration service. I would recommend them over and over again for anyone looking for an immigration advice. They gave me a free immigration advice when i called them, and the quality of the advice was something other charge thousands for. If you need a particular, name, Amar would be it. He exemplifies, for me, the true, professional gentleman. He is a valuable asset to Reiss Edwards.
I am glad that i instructed Reiss Edwards on my visa matter. It started with a 20 minutes free immigration advice. I met with Amar to discuss my ILR refusal. He gave me a great deal of quality advice and decided to take on my messy case. I had doubts on the merits of my case by he was relatively convinced he could win it. That made me quite secure. To be honest, things did not start as quick as I would have wanted, but they kept on communicating the process and state of things to me.A big thank you to Verusha and Foram. They were also very helpful. Brilliant and informative. Their fee was fair and reasonable, especially if you compare them to other law firms and immigration law firms in London; some of whom even told me that i would not be able to get an indefinte leave to remain in this country. The process was long but was worth it. In the end, a big thank you to Reiss Edwards.
Investing over 2 million pounds is defintely not a routine decision. We had to make sure that the Tier 1 investor immigration lawyers that we'd be picking has to be one of the best within the Tier 1 investor category. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they were able to get us not only the Tier 1 investor visa but also suggested profitable investment portfolios in addition to what we already had in mind.
TI have just had British Citizenship application approved. Prior to making the application, i was not sure which law firm i should hire to facilitate the paperwork. After a few hours of research, i decided to go with Reiss Edwards and i must confess that i wasnt disappointed. The immigration lawyers at Reiss Edwards handled my case well and they really knew what they were doing. They were fully aware of what documents I needed and it was easy for them to tell if my case was going to be easy or not. At the end of the day, I have not received my British citizenship within 3 months. If anyone is looking for a good immigration lawyer to handle thier case, contact Reiss Edwards.
My wife's spouse visa extension application was refused by the Home Office and they gave her 14 days to leave the country. We contacted Reiss Edwards and they said "OK don't worry we will sort this out". They put together the list of documents for me to obtain and they prepared a bundle which was as thick as the printer it came out from.We followed everything they asked us to do and in the end we won our appeal and got our spouse visa. We can't recommend them enough and we have promised ourselves never to make any more UK visa applications without them.

I contacted Reiss Edwards to help me with my wife's UK settlement visa. They acted with utmost professionalism throughout the entire application. I spoke with Joe Dinh, he is an immigration solicitor and he is one of the best solicitors out there. He ensured that there was little to no room for error. At some point I thought he was over cautious. He remained calmed and continued to assure us on our immigration matter. Most people in his position would have panicked but he was calmed and continued to assure us. We received out positive outcome very quickly.
I have been using Reiss Edwards for three years now for my family's immigration application. Both for my initial application and extension. They are really affordable. The team of solicitors at this firm are probably one of the most efficient and economical in terms of cost. They offered free advice over the phone and spent good time with us before inviting us for consultation.
Reiss Edwards is a top notch immigration service company. The way they handled our documentation and also the list of documents they sent was efficient and top quality.

I used Reiss Edwards immigration lawyers to assist with my immigration matter and that of my family. It was an EX1 application. They dealt with the matter properly and even when complications were coming up from the Home Office, they helped resolve the issue properly. They are very professional and are very popular in London. I am happy to have worked with them.
This is the only firm that i spoke with that didn't ask for money before listening to me, will be using them again.
I used Reiss Edwards for my Tier 2 visa application and it was successful. The team was ever present and happy to answer my question. The caseworker that dealing with my case went on holiday yet by case did not suffer one bit. Another lawyer stepped and took over the case without any hassle.
My Tier 1 Investor Visa was dealt with quickly and without issue. Would recommend Reiss Edwards as an Immigration law firm in London. Thank you to the team.
