European Union Restrictive Measures

The EU Sub-Committee on External Affairs regularly scrutinises specific European Union restrictive measures or sanctions against individuals and entities.

The Committee has also taken evidence on more general issues surrounding EU sanctions from Maya Lester and Philip Moser QC. For example, how EU sanctions have been contested in court, including the grounds on which sanctions have been overturned.

The Committee has also received a formal written submission from the Europe Minister. The transcript from the evidence session and letter from the Europe Minister are available below.
