Question for Department for Exiting the European Union

UIN 900656, tabled on 29 August 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on ensuring future cooperation with the EU on security policy after the UK has left the EU.

Answered on

7 September 2017

DExEU ministers regularly discuss exit issues with Cabinet and Ministerial colleagues. This includes security.

The Prime Minister has been clear that we will continue to work closely with our European partners to tackle a range of security issues.

The safety of the British public is a top priority. That security is enhanced through cooperating with Europe. The UK has always been, and will continue to be, a major global player in the fight against threats to security.

With the threat constantly evolving, our response must be to work more closely with our partners, including the EU and its Member States, sharing information and supporting each other in combating the threats posed by those who wish us harm.
