UIN 68354, tabled on 2 July 2020

As I set out at the Lords’ EU Services Sub-Committee last Thursday, the questionnaires that the EU have sent as part of their assessment process of the UK’s equivalence framework amount to over 1000 pages of extremely technical questions, the last 250 pages of which only reached us at the end of May. My officials have been responding to these questions as quickly as possible and will return the remaining questionnaires by the end of this week.
