Reports published

First report

The Exiting the European Union Committee's first report calls for transitional arrangements on trade, no return to tariffs for UK businesses and parliamentary vote on final deal.

Government Response

Second report

The Government should now make a unilateral decision to safeguard the rights of EU nationals living in the UK, the cross-party Exiting the European Union Committee has unanimously agreed in its report. The MPs are also calling on the Government to seek to ensure that UK nationals already resident in other EU countries – and EU citizens already living here – do not lose their rights to healthcare and pensions after Brexit.

Third report

The Exiting the European Union Committee concludes in its report that the Government's assertion that "no deal is better than a bad deal" is unsubstantiated without an economic assessment of "no deal" having been done and without evidence that steps are being taken to mitigate what would be the damaging effect of such an outcome.

Scope of the inquiry

Following the outcome of the EU referendum, the Committee undertakes an inquiry into the UK's negotiating objectives for our withdrawal from the EU.
