The future UK–EU relationship – what do parliamentarians want?

Negotiations with the EU are far from over. The UK and the EU may or may not reach a deal by the end of the year, and key issues on state aid and fisheries are yet to be resolved.

Both sides also need to implement the Withdrawal Agreement in full. During the Article 50 negotiations, parliament played a prominent role in debating – and voting on – the shape of the UK’s exit from the EU. But MPs have largely been cut off from the future relationship negotiations.

In this event, we explored how MPs have tried to influence the future relationship negotiations and what they hope to see in the final settlement.

Panellists

Paul Blomfield MP, Labour Shadow Minister for Brexit and EU
Lord Lilley, Conservative Peer and member of the Lords EU Goods Sub-committee
Lord Ricketts, Chair of the Lords EU Security and Justice Sub-committee

This event was chaired by Jill Rutter, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Government.
