The EU Withdrawal Bill - the Bill that takes us out of the EU

Brexit extension_64136

The Government’s Withdrawal Agreement Bill has been agreed by Parliament and received Royal Assent. Therefore the UK will leave the European Union on 31 January 2020 and enter a transition period until 31 December 2020.

The NFU believes that the Bill should create the right conditions for farmers to deliver an increased proportion of the nation’s food requirements alongside continuing their highly valued environmental stewardship of the countryside, covering the 70% of our land that is farmed, and maintaining their reputation for the highest standards of animal health and welfare.

The NFU's EU exit and international trade team has prepared two briefings for NFU members:
