Lords committee report – UK-EU sanctions relationship after Brexit

Parliament6.jpgThe House of Lords European Union Committee has published a report on UK-EU relations after Brexit which expresses concern about the “delay and uncertainty” surrounding the Government’s development of “detailed, workable proposals” for the framework for future UK – EU relations.

As regards sanctions, the report notes that the UK Government position and EU Council & Parliament are agreed that there should be cooperation on sanctions, including information exchange, but no agreement about the mechanism for delivering that outcome. It also notes the European Parliament’s position that “as a third country UK will not be able to participate in the EU’s decision-making”.
