The House of Commons: European Scrutiny Committee published a report Brexit and the European Scrutiny System in the House of Commons in March 2017.
In the report the members of the committee argued that the UKGovernment must continue to consider EU proposals over the next two years, even though the UK was to leave the EU in 2019.
In negotiating Brexit, the UK Government needed to be alert to the negotiations on current and ongoing European business; it cannot start from the assumption that EU policy and legal frameworks were fixed.
The Committee was concerned that departments might not be dealing with existing dossiers competently in parallel with the Brexit negotiations.
The Government should be more alert to the connection between the two, since looking at proposals for EU legislation from a Brexit perspective highlights the issues that would arise more generally in disentangling the UK from the EU. Ministers needed to continue to pay close attention to these matters.
