Level playing field and state aid

Inquiry

This short inquiry will explore how the level playing field and state aid rules will feature in negotiations of the future relationship between the UK and the EU. Building on a previous inquiry, Brexit: competition and state aid, it will consider what the level playing field means in practice, how it operates in current EU free trade agreements, the EU’s goals with its state aid policies, and the opportunities that are open to the UK in formulating its own state aid policy, in particular for supporting wider UK Government objectives such as "levelling up" the country and meeting climate targets.
