On the EU side, the Council adopted a decision authorising signature and provisional application of the TCA on 29 December 2020. On the UK side, an Act of Parliament was needed in order for the UK to be in a position to apply the TCA provisionally. A Bill was published on 29 December 2020. For background reading, see:
