Inquiry Status open Contact us

Oral evidence ongoing.

Scope of the inquiry

In general terms, the purpose of these sessions is to explore: (i) developments since the Committee published its report in March 2017; (ii) progress during the Brexit negotiations; (iii) the contents of the Withdrawal Agreement which includes provisions addressing civil justice cooperation during the transition period; and, (iv) the contents of the Government's formal response to the report; in particular, the suggestion that should it fail to reach an arrangement with the EU27 on future civil justice cooperation it is considering how "ongoing cooperation in this area could be wound down". (This statement has particular ramifications for family law in the UK.)
