Brexit: Britain allays fears; Latvians living in the UK will have their rights guaranteed after the UK pulls out of the EU.; Estonians

From Euronews 

'Speaking on a visit to Riga, alongside Latvia’s Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkevics, Brexit Secretary David Davis said “they’ll have all the rights they have now...We want to see the most civilised and the most responsible arrangement possible. We want to see Latvian citizens in the UK have all the rights they have now continue into the future. And it’s not just the residence rights, that’s public services, it’s healthcare, it’s all the normal rights that we would give to our own citizens.”'

I assume that this is the hope and intention.

U.K. Will Need Low-Skilled EU Migrants After Brexit, Davis Says, Bloomberg

"During a visit to Estonia, Davis said it will take “years and years” to persuade British workers to do jobs in the hospitality industry or agriculture that are currently carried out by EU migrants, arguing the economy needs continued immigration to maintain its success".

"I understand that the 15,000 Estonians currently living in the UK want certainty about their rights once the UK leaves the EU. And while Estonians’ existing rights are not affected the British government wants to get a deal done to secure long term rights quickly that protects the rights of all EU citizens living in the UK, and British citizens living in the EU. Indeed we would have liked to have come to such an agreement already, and have been clear it will be an absolute priority once formal negotiations begin".
