Brexit and Parliaments - 21/02/2017

Tuesday, 21 February 2017 at Europe House, London

When it comes to Brexit, Parliaments matter. The European Parliament must give its consent to any accord reached between the EU-27 and the UK on Article 50, and also to any subsequent trade agreement. The Westminster legislature has approved the trigger for Article 50 and has been promised a say on the final deal.
