Science and Technology Committee (Commons)
Report and Government response published.
The Committee requested written submissions to address terms of reference announced at the beginning of our inquiry. Oral and written evidence identified a number of potential risks and opportunities, for example concerning the mobility of scientists, collaborative research opportunities, funding, access to research facilities, regulation and market access, private sector investment, administrative burdens/costs, etc. The Committee sought further contributions on the risks and opportunities of leaving the EU, to allow the Committee to draw together a ‘Risk Assessment’ and a list of risks/opportunities which should feature in the Government’s work to set a new EU/UK negotiating strategy.
Evidence given by Mr Robin Walker MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department for Exiting the European Union, Jo Johnson MP, Minister for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation, and Gareth Davies, Director General, Business and Science, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
