The Lords EU Committee takes evidence from legal academics and researchers on the future relationship between the UK and the EU, comparing the visions for that relationship set out by the UK Government, the European Council and the European Parliament.

Possible questions

  • What are the main obstacles to delivering the Prime Minister’s vision for the future UK-EU relationship?
  • What are the main areas of common ground or disagreement between the models for UK-EU relations proposed by the UK Government, the European Council and the European Parliament? Is there any evidence of willingness to compromise?
  • What areas are likely to be covered in the framework for future relations, to be agreed in October 2018?
  • What issues will remain to be resolved after the UK leaves the EU on 29 March 2019? Will the dynamic change after that point?
