Withdrawal Bill - the legal position

Scales of Justice_56989

The government has published a legal position from the office of the Attorney General (Geoffrey Cox QC MP) setting out the overall legal effect of the draft Withdrawal Agreement agreed by the UK Government and the EU27 on the 25 November.

The NFU's EU exit and international trade team has provided a briefing to summarise the legal position as presented by the government. It should be read in conjunction with the NFU brief of 3 December 2019 setting out the key elements of the draft Withdrawal Agreement.

The NFU's London team has also prepared a briefing which sets out the details of what to expect in the run up to the meaningful vote on 11 December - read it here.

    Comment: Finally, someone has explained what Brexit and the Draft Withdrawl Agreement means in terms that I can understand. A great piece of work.
