Statement

My Rt Hon Friend the Prime Minister has made the following statement:

Article 11 of the UK-EU trade and co-operation agreement states: “The European Parliament and the Parliament of the United Kingdom may establish a Parliamentary Partnership Assembly” —consisting of Members of both Parliaments— “as a forum to exchange views on the partnership.” In December, the House of Commons and House of Lords endorsed the establishment of the Assembly. Both Houses agreed that the procedures currently applying to the nomination, support and funding of delegations to other treaty-based parliamentary assemblies will apply.

This statement sets out the United Kingdom delegation to the UK-EU Parliamentary Partnership Assembly. The Government also takes this opportunity to congratulate Roberta Metsola on her election as the new President of the European Parliament.

The UK delegation is:
