EU-UK: BREXIT: House of Lords Select Committee on the EU: Brexit: parliamentary scrutiny


See the full text: Brexit: parliamentary scrutiny (pdf): Concludes that:

"The current level of scrutiny of trade and other international negotiations by the European Parliament, as set out in the 2010 Framework Agreement between the European Parliament and the European Commission, provides a baseline against which any arrangements agreed in the United Kingdom Parliament must be measured: it would be unacceptable for the European Parliament to have greater rights of scrutiny over the negotiations on Brexit than Westminster. We are therefore grateful for the Secretary of State’s assurance that the level of scrutiny in Westminster will at least match that in Brussels."
