Northern Ireland Affairs Committee
Interim Report published on Saturday 9 March 2019. Oral evidence ongoing.
The Northern Ireland Affairs Committee published its report on the land border in March, before the text of the Withdrawal Agreement was agreed with the EU. In this new inquiry, the Committee will examine the implications of the Government’s Withdrawal Agreement for Northern Ireland, as well as the state of no-deal planning in Northern Ireland.
(I) The impact of implementing the backstop in Northern Ireland
(II) Scrutiny of the Withdrawal Agreement mechanisms
(III) Securing an overall EU-UK relationship which supersedes the Withdrawal Agreement and obviates the need to enter the backstop
(IV) No deal
