EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee

Brexit: the proposed UK-EU security treaty

Inquiry status: open Contact us

Inquiry launched 2 March 2018.

Scope of the inquiry

EU member states currently enjoy levels of cooperation and mutual recognition that go far deeper than any comparable international collaborations. In its future partnership paper on security, law enforcement and criminal justice, the government called for a partnership between the UK and EU "that goes beyond the existing, often ad hoc arrangement for EU third-country relationships," and has supported the idea of a UK-EU treaty that would provide "a legal basis" for continued cooperation.

This inquiry will examine the practical and legal challenges for negotiating a security treaty with the EU, and what such a treaty might cover.

The Committee will begin taking oral evidence for this inquiry in March.
