“The HPA recently received the attached from the Home Office in the event of a ‘No Deal Brexit’.
As far as polo is concerned in the immediate future the most relevant statement at the moment is in para 3:
“The new points based system will not apply until January 2021. Between 31 October 2019 and 31 December 2020 (i.e. for next season) law abiding EU citizens and their family members will be able to move to the UK and live, study, work and access benefits as they do now.”

The HPA is actively engaged with the Home Office and recently had a meeting in Sheffield with the Border Agency. We hope to be in a position to update members further shortly.
