To ensure the least possible disruption to citizens and businesses, MEPs will vote on travel, air and road transport, Erasmus, social security and fisheries measures.
At the request of the European Parliament and the Council, the European Commission proposed contingency measures to mitigate the effects of a withdrawal of the UK from the EU without an agreement.
Contingency measures do not replicate the benefits of membership or of a transition period. They are limited in time and adopted unilaterally by the EU on the condition that the UK adopts similar measures (reciprocity).
The legislative measures being put to the vote in an urgency procedure on Wednesday in the context of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU include:
Procedure: ordinary legislative procedure, first reading
Vote: Wednesday, 13 March
