Department for Exiting the European Union
To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what process he plans to establish to help the Joint Committee referred to in Article 157 of the Draft Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union to be accountable to Parliament.

The UK will continue to engage constructively in the ongoing negotiations concerning the governance and dispute resolution mechanisms of our Withdrawal Agreement with the EU.

Decisions concerning the exact details of the Joint Committee, including the necessary processes for establishing it, will follow on from these negotiations.

It will be for Parliament to determine the level of scrutiny it will want to undertake based on the detailed arrangements agreed between the UK and EU. But of course the Government will work with Parliament to agree the right approach to scrutiny.
