Committee examines future parliamentary scrutiny of EU relations
1 December 2020
The Committee on the Future Relationship with the European Union returns on Wednesday 2 December, with a virtual evidence session focused on how Parliament could scrutinise the UK-EU relationship after the transition period ends.
- Watch on Parliament TV: the shape of future parliamentary scrutiny of UK-EU relations
- Inquiry: the shape of future parliamentary scrutiny of UK-EU relations
- Committee on the Future Relationship with the European Union
Purpose of the session
Since the 2016 referendum, Parliament has scrutinised the UK’s withdrawal from the EU through departmental and other select committees, as well as via debates, statements and questions in the Chamber.
With the end of the transition period approaching, this session will consider how effective Parliament has been in holding the Government to account on matters relating to the UK’s departure, what areas it should prioritise for scrutiny in the future, and how this scrutiny might best be carried out.
