Guidelines on the framework of future EU-UK relations: extracts from the debate
Event date: 13/03/2018
During the EP plenary session (12 - 15 March 2018) in Strasbourg, MEPs debate a resolution laying out the EP’s position on a possible framework for EU-UK future relations. The draft resolution suggests that an association agreement could provide an appropriate framework for the future relationship and stresses that even closely aligned third countries with identical legislation cannot enjoy similar benefits or market access to those of EU member states. Statement by Jean-Claude JUNCKER, President of the EC, Elmar BROK (EPP, DE), Roberto GUALTIERI (S&D, IT), Guy VERHOFSTADT, EP coordinator for the negotiations with the UK, Philippe LAMBERTS (Greens/EFA, BE) and Michel BARNIER, EU Chief negotiator for Brexit.
