Lack of sufficient progress on divorce terms for Brexit

Progress on EU priorities in the first four rounds of talks with the UK has not been sufficient, says Parliament’s draft resolution

The European Council should determine that “sufficient progress” has not been made on the EU’s three key aims - safeguarding EU and UK citizens’ rights, clarifying the UK’s financial commitments and resolving the Republic of Ireland/Northern Ireland border issue - unless the fifth round of talks delivers a major breakthrough on them, says a draft resolution endorsed by Parliament’s Conference of Presidents (EP President and political group leaders) on Thursday.

The motion, drawn up by Parliament’s Brexit Steering Group, will be debated and put to a vote by the full house next Tuesday.
