Topics for discussion
This week, as part of its short inquiry into the consequences of the EU referendum result on the rights currently enjoyed by EU citizens in this country, the EU Justice Sub-Committee under the Chairmanship of Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws, will hold two separate evidence sessions.
- The first will be with Her Excellency Sylvie Bermann the French Ambassador to London. Members of the EU Justice Sub-Committee look forward to discussing with the Ambassador the ramifications of the UK's departure from the EU for French and British nationals resident in both countries.
- The second session will be with the Rt Hon the Lord Howard of Lympne CH QC. As a prominent supporter of the UK's exit from the EU, the Committee wishes to explore his views as to how the freedoms and rights currently enjoyed by EU citizens by virtue of EU law might best be addressed during and after the negotiation of the UK's withdrawal from the EU.
