Debate on EU’s 28-29 June “Brexit” summit conclusions
MEPs will debate the conclusions of the 28-29 June EU summit, where EU leaders digested the UK referendum vote to leave the EU and insisted that “there will be no negotiations of any kind until the UK formally notifies its intention to withdraw." Council President Donald Tusk and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will kick off the debate, on Tuesday.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron confirmed at the summit that the formal decision to trigger Article 50 of the EU Treaty would be taken by a new leadership in Britain. Afterwards, Mr Tusk said the leaders were “absolutely determined to remain united and work closely together as 27."
Other items on the summit agenda included digital single market and capital markets union proposals, “European Semester” country-specific economic policy recommendations, and the EU’s global strategy for common foreign and security policy.
Debate: Tuesday 5 July
Procedure: European Council and Commission statements
