Treasury launches inquiry into UK’s economic relationship with the EU

The Treasury Committee has launched a new inquiry into the UK’s economic relationship with the EU, which amongst other things will consider:

  • Transitional arrangements;
  • Preparedness for ‘no deal’; and
  • The long-term economic relationship.

The inquiry is now open, and is accepting written submissions.

The first evidence session (to be held 25 October) will focus on the progress of negotiations to date, the design and governance of transitional arrangements, and the shape of the long-term economic relationship.

Rt Hon. Nicky Morgan MP, Chair of the Treasury Committee, stated that firms and individuals “needed certainty” and that the inquiry’s priority will be to “consider the negotiation, design and governance of transitional arrangements.”
