Minister questioned on the proposed UK-EU security treaty

11 May 2018

The EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee takes evidence from the Rt Hon Nick Hurd MP, Minister of State for Policing and the Fire Service.

Background

The evidence session will cover the practical and legal challenges for negotiating a treaty covering police and security cooperation post-Brexit, and what they mean for the Government's proposed security treaty with the EU.

Witness

Tuesday 15 May 2018, Committee Room 4a, Palace of Westminster

At 11.00am

  • Rt Hon Nick Hurd MP, Minister of State for Policing and the Fire Service

Possible questions

  • If Denmark, an EU Member State within the Schengen zone, cannot directly access Europol's databases, does the Government expect to maintain access to these databases once the UK has left the EU?
  • Does the Government expect to conclude a security agreement with the EU before it concludes a trade agreement?
  • Why does the Government feel that a security treaty would be the best model for ongoing police and judicial cooperation between the UK and EU? Given the depth and extent of the UK's security relationship with the EU, could a treaty adequately cover all necessary areas?
