22 July 2020
The Chair of the EU Security and Justice Sub-Committee, Lord Ricketts, has again written to the Government raising Members' deep concerns about its plans to replace EU based security and policing measures with inadequate non-EU alternatives after 31 December 2020 if a deal with the EU on such matters cannot be agreed
- Letter dated 24 July 2020 from Lord Ricketts, Chair EU Security and Justice Sub-Committee to Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP, Security Minister
- Letter dated 26 June 2020 from Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP, Security Minister, to Lord Ricketts, Chair EU Security and Justice Sub-Committee
- EU Security and Justice Sub-Committee
The Committee's letter continues correspondence with the Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP, Security Minister's following his appearance before the Security and Justice Sub-Committee on Tuesday 16 June 2020. In the letter, the Committee cites evidence from Deputy Assistant Commissioner Richard Martin, the National Police Chiefs' Council's Lead for Brexit, which predicts a considerable impact on UK policing and, therefore, public safety should the negotiations between the UK and the EU fail.
The Committee looks forward to considering the Government's response.
