Question for written answer P-006151-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Pavel Telička (ALDE)

 Subject:  Nomination of Michel Barnier as the Commission's chief Brexit negotiator
 Answer in writing 

Michel Barnier has been named as the Commission's chief Brexit negotiator. Although he is known as an experienced politician and a skilful negotiator, many questions remain unanswered with regard to the role of the Commission in the negotiations. Indeed, some Member States have already signalled their preference for national governments to take the lead once London has triggered Article 50. The Council has named Belgian diplomat Didier Seeuws as its lead Brexit negotiator, and Parliament also expects to play a central role in these negotiations.

1. With regard to the interinstitutional debate in Brussels, can the Commission specify its vision of how the Brexit negotiations will be organised?

2. Who does the Commission consider should be the main point of contact for a future UK Government in the negotiations?

3. Finally, the Commission has reiterated its position that there will be no exit negotiations until the UK formally triggers the withdrawal process. In this respect, what will the Commission chief negotiator be doing over the coming months?
