Government responds to UK-EU security cooperation after Brexit report

14 September 2018

The Home Affairs Committee publishes the Government's Response to its report into UK-EU security cooperation after Brexit.

The Committee's report warned that the lack of progress in the negotiations and the vast gap between the UK and EU negotiating positions on security, was creating a serious risk that crucial aspects of security cooperation will end after Brexit. The Committee recommended both sides must drop some of their rigid red lines and recognise that compromises will have to be made to ensure that crucial policing and security cooperation could continue without a major loss of capabilities.
