EU Institutions
To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what recent discussions he has had with EU negotiators on the involvement of the UK in EU institutions and organisations during the implementation phase.
Answered by: Mr Robin Walker
Answered on: 01 February 2018

At the General Affairs Council on Monday, the European Council agreed negotiating directives on the implementation period. Now that the Commission has a clear negotiating mandate, we hope to move quickly to begin detailed discussions on the implementation period.

The exact nature of our involvement in the EU institutions, agencies and bodies during the implementation period remains a matter for discussion.

However, during the implementation period, we are agreed that EU rules and regulations will continue to apply. To ensure that these rules and regulations operate effectively, it makes sense that the UK continues to be involved in relevant bodies.
