"We are delighted and relieved by the decision of the Supreme Court today. There can now be proper control by the MPs the British people elect over the process of the UK leaving the EU. Together with 3 million nationals of other European countries who live here, we are the people who are most profoundly affected by all of this. Everything people in Britain take for granted in their daily lives rests for us on our being EU citizens."

"Proper parliamentary scrutiny now offers the best chance for our circumstances to be considered in the lead up to the Brexit negotiations. This is the human side of Brexit. We would urge the government not to use us as bargaining chips. We will be calling on the government and the European Commission to ensure hard guarantees are put in place about what the future holds for such a large number of ordinary people. We ask that governments across the EU do the same."
Campaigners representing the rights of UK citizens living and working in the European Union said they were "delighted and relieved" by Tuesday's ruling at the Supreme Court on the process of leaving the EU.
Britain's government must get parliamentary approval before starting the Brexit process, the court ruled, potentially delaying Prime Minister Theresa May's plans to trigger negotiations by the end of March.
John Shaw, spokesperson for campaign group Fair Deal for Expats, said "proper parliamentary scrutiny now offers the best chance for our circumstances to be considered in the lead up to the Brexit negotiations".
He also urged the government not to use the EU expatriate community as "bargaining chips" but to ensure "hard guarantees are put in place about what the future holds for such a large number of ordinary people"
