In July the Committee launched an inquiry to examine the state of Home Office preparations for Brexit in all scenarios. This work continues the Committee's scrutiny of Government readiness across customs operations, security co-operation and citizens' rights in the event of a no-deal exit from the European Union.
This oral evidence session will enable the Committee to examine how UK border operations will be impacted by Brexit and the scope for alternative arrangements to mitigate any possible impacts.
This will be the Committee’s first opportunity to consider the Government’s latest proposals for a withdrawal agreement.
