The first meeting of EU-UK Parliamentary Partnership Assembly took place on 12-13 May 2022, in Brussels. This was the first time that representatives from both parliaments met in this new body.

The meeting was organised in two sessions. The first, taking place on Thursday 12 May, from 14.30 to 18.00, was devoted to discussions on the state of play within the Partnership Council and EU-UK cooperation in relation to the war in Ukraine. The PPA also addressed very important technical issues. Thus, it adopted its Rules of Procedure and agreed on what type of information to seek and share with the Partnership Council

The second session, on Friday 13 May from 09.00 to 12.30, focused on the impact of Withdrawal Agreement issues upon the work of the Partnership Council and the importance of building the new multi-dimensional EU-UK relationship, cooperation in the field of energy and the future work of the Assembly.

The Co-Chairs, Ms Nathalie Loiseau and Sir Oliver Heald appeared at a press point on Thursday 12 May at 13:15.

The Co-Chairs also signed a joint statement (the full text to be found under the link below).
