Policy Frameworks after Brexit

Michael Keating

A sbumission from Prof. Michael Keating to the Common Frameworks inquiry.

The Finance and Constitution Committee recognised in its interim report on the EU (Withdrawal) Bill that “significant further work is required in relation to the scrutiny of developing and agreeing common frameworks” and “that this is a critically important area of work and will consider it further.”   The Committee identified a number of areas which require further detailed examination –

• What should replace the current EU policy-making processes across the UK;
• Addressing the governance gap in relation to the monitoring, implementation and enforcement of frameworks;
• The interaction between frameworks and the negotiation of new international agreements including free trade deals;
• Funding of obligations and commitments arising from frameworks.

The closing date for submissions was Friday 31 August 2018.
