EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement: extracts from the press conference and statements
During the plenary session (26-29 April 2021) in the European Parliament in Brussels, MEPs debate on the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. To minimise cross-border disruption, the agreement has already been applied provisionally since 1 January 2021; the provisional agreement is set to lapse on 30 April 2021. Parliament’s consent is necessary for the agreement to properly enter into force. Extracts from the press conference and statements by David McALLISTER (EPP, DE), Chair AFET, Bernd LANGE (S&D, DE), Chair INTA, Christophe HANSEN (EPP, LU), Rapporteur and Andreas SCHIEDER (S&D, AT).
