  • European Parliament: Brexit negotiations

    15/12/2016

  • HoL EU Committee: Brexit: financial services

    15/12/2016
    The report highlights the importance of agreeing a transitional period for financial services. It describes third-country equivalence provisions as “patchy,... unreliable and vulnerable to political influence” and not a substitute for passporting arrangements. It also suggests that the UK financial services sector may not be easily replicated elsewhere in the EU, arguing that “pain caused to the UK's financial sector will not be the EU's gain, but New York’s. "We are in danger of a lose-lose scenario if pragmatism does not prevail". The report also asserts that “some firms do not themselves appear to be aware of their reliance on current passporting arrangements. It would be in the interest of the firms themselves, as well as in the national interest, if they were to work with the Government and regulators to determine the true extent of such reliance”. A volume of oral and written evidence has also been published (third link below).

  • HoL EU Committee:: Brexit: acquired rights

    14/12/2016
    The HoL report recommends that the Government should give a unilateral guarantee now that it will safeguard the EU citizenship rights... of all EU nationals in the UK post-Brexit, stating: “if certain EU rights are to be safeguarded on the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, they should be safeguarded in the withdrawal agreement itself. The agreement will be binding under international law, and will be given effect, and enforced, in the national legal systems of the UK and the EU Member States. This would be the most certain way of providing effective legal protection. It would also be the most effective way of reducing the level of litigation that would undoubtedly follow a Brexit where these rights were not safeguarded”.
