Q. I am a British citizen. Can a member of my family who is not a British citizen still apply under the settlement scheme, even though we have left the EU?
Once a deal is reached EEA nationals will be subject to domestic UK law. Does reg 9 continue to have effect post-brexit? Yes. By para EU12 of the Appendix EU, the family member of a British citizen who is lawfully resident in the UK by the 31 December 2020 by virtue of reg 9 will be eligible to apply for the appropriate immigration status under the scheme.
