Reporting back to Committee following the conclusion of the trilogue on enforcement of EU-UK agreements measures
Following the end of the trilogue this week on enforcement of EU-UK agreements, Professor Danuta Hübner will present the inter-institutional agreement. This is a historic agreement on how to enforce breaches of the TCA and Withdrawal Agreement. The Commission was empowered with an effective crisis management tool to protect EU interests if the UK breaches its commitments under both Agreements. Importantly, Parliament’s scrutiny rights are fully upheld to play its role in the oversight of the implementation of the Agreements and of measures in case of UK breaches.
