Brexit co-ordinated inquiries publication begins on Monday


The House of Lords EU Committee – Parliament’s largest body responsible for scrutinising the European Union – will publish six reports on Brexit in six days, starting on 12 December.

The reports will identify key issues across a broad range of policy areas, making recommendations to the Government on what it should prioritise in Brexit negotiations.

These six reports will be followed in the New Year by further reports, ahead of the Government’s proposed deadline of March for triggering Article 50. Taken as a whole, this programme of work will be the most extensive and thorough parliamentary scrutiny of Brexit.

The publication schedule for the reports is:

Brexit: UK-Irish relations – Monday 12 December
Brexit: options for trade – Tuesday 13 December
Brexit: acquired rights – Wednesday 14 December
Brexit: financial services – Thursday 15 December
Brexit: future UK-EU security and policing cooperation – Friday 16 December
Brexit: fisheries – Saturday 17 December
