European Parliament Members

Question for Department for Exiting the European Union

UIN HL14659, tabled on 19 March 2019

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will ask the EU Council of Ministers to consider (1) extending the mandate of current UK MEPs beyond the end of June for the length of the implementation period, and (2) the possibility of UK MEPs having Observer Status for that period; and whether they have given any consideration to appointing MEPs for a mandate of two years from 30 June.

Once the UK leaves the EU we will no longer have elected representatives in the European Parliament. Any extension of MEP’s mandate would not be in line with the EU Treaties.
