On 14 November, the UK Government and European Commission published a further version of the Withdrawal Agreement in relation to the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, an outline Political Declaration on the framework of the future EU/UK relationship, and a joint statement. On 22 November, it was announced that further progress had been made on the Political Declaration, a full version of which was formally published shortly afterwards.
Part 1 of this briefing contains an overview of the most-discussed aspects of the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration.
Part 2 considers in more detail some of the key aspects likely to be of interest to corporates and the financial sector as the UK edges closer to a final conclusion.
