THE WHAT? The House of Lords Security and Justice EU Sub-Committee will hear more detail on the future of UK-EU sanctions collaboration this week in a live session tabled for 10 am tomorrow.
THE DETAILS The session will look at whether the UK can and should continue to collaborate with the EU on sanctions policy and the consequences for the effectiveness of their respective regimes if it does not do so.
Three witnesses from the former Committee’s 2017 enquiry into Brexit and UK sanctions policy will give evidence at the session.
THE WHY? With the Brexit deadline looming, the UK is attempting to navigate its new path. The session is designed to help assess the benefits and challenges that new policy may bring to the UK agencies, businesses and individuals affected by it.
