To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord True on 22 February (HL13057), when they expect to announce the first meetings of the committees established under the UK–EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement; and what representations the UK has made to the EU to establish these meetings.
10 March 2021
The dates of the first meetings of the committees established under the UK - EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement have not yet been agreed with the EU. These bodies, including the Partnership Council, will begin their work formally once the Agreement has been ratified - unless there are essential decisions which cannot be deferred. We look forward to a positive and constructive relationship with the EU, allowing businesses and citizens on both sides of the channel to prosper.
