Secretary of State and Prime Minister's Europe Adviser questioned

30 November 2018

The Committee on Exiting the European Union returns with an evidence session on Monday 3 December, part of its over-arching inquiry examining the progress of the UK's negotiations on EU withdrawal.

Important questions on Brexit to be answered before debate in the Commons

Ahead of the House of Commons commencing five days of debate on the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration on the Framework for the Future Relationship agreed at the recent European Council meeting, the Committee will question the recently-appointed Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, Stephen Barclay MP, and Oliver Robbins, Europe Adviser to the Prime Minister.

Purpose of the session

In this session, the Committee is expected to focus on the contents of the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration, as well as economic analysis of the impact of Brexit produced by the Government and Bank of England. The Committee is also expected to consider the implications of the backstop contained in the Withdrawal Agreement being triggered and the extent to which the Government continues to plan for a no-deal scenario.

From 1.30pm

  • Rt. Hon. Stephen Barclay MP, Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union
