Government responds to dispute resolution and enforcement after Brexit report

12 July 2018

The Government has responded to the report of the EU Justice Sub-Committee on dispute resolution and enforcement after Brexit

Without judicial oversight any "intractable" disagreements with the EU will be "potentially insoluble", and individuals and businesses would also be unable to protect and enforce their rights.

The Government has made clear its wish that when the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, the "direct jurisdiction" in the UK of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) will end. The Committee has looked at:

  • the enforcement of any withdrawal agreement concluded under Article 50;
  • oversight of the proposed transition period; and
  • enforcement of any agreement that is reached on the future relationship between the EU and the UK.
