Parliament's post-Brexit vision for future EU-UK relations


Parliament’s political leadership has endorsed a draft resolution laying out a possible framework for future EU-UK relations after Brexit.  


The draft resolution, prepared by the European Parliament’s Brexit Steering Group and approved by the Conference of Presidents (President and political group leaders) on 7 March, suggests that an EU-UK association agreement could provide an appropriate framework for the future relationship.

But the text stresses that even closely aligned third countries with identical legislation cannot enjoy similar benefits or market access as EU member states.

The debate and vote (on Wednesday ) come ahead of the 22-23 March EU summit in Brussels where EU heads of state or government are expected to approve the Council’s guidelines for the future relationship negotiations.  

You can watch the plenary debate via EP Live and EbS+.
