10 Jan 2020 01:26 PM
The House of Lords EU Select Committee has today published its report on the revised EU Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration on future UK-EU relations ahead of House Lords consideration of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which starts on Monday 13 January.
The report analyses the revised UK-EU Withdrawal Agreement, and the accompanying Political Declaration setting out the framework for future UK-EU relations, which were presented to Parliament on 19 October 2019.
The report outlines, in turn, the withdrawal provisions, the transition provisions, the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland, and the Political Declaration on future relations. The report seeks to provide dispassionate analysis, to assist parliamentary and public debate, drawing on the 44 Brexit-related reports published by the Committee since the 2016 referendum.
