Brexit should be scrutinised as it happens say Lords

The House of Lords EU Committee publishes its report urging that Parliament should be actively involved in scrutinising the forthcoming negotiations on Brexit as they happen – rather than after decisions have been taken, as proposed by the Government.


The report builds on undertakings by the Secretary of State for Exiting the EU, Rt Hon David Davis MP, that the Westminster Parliament would have at least the same level of access to information during the negotiations as the European Parliament. The Committee explains just what this will mean in practice.
