Public Law analysis: The UK and EU are moving into the next phase of Brexit negotiations concerning the framework for the future UK-EU relationship with a view to reaching agreement on a political declaration to sit alongside the Article 50 withdrawal agreement. The European Council agreed its guidelines for the forthcoming negotiations in March 2018 and the UK and EU are looking to reach agreement by October 2018. Any agreement on the future relationship would then be finalised after the UK leaves the EU in March 2019. In this third report on the Article 50 TEU negotiations, the Exiting the European Union Committee acknowledges that reaching a comprehensive bespoke agreement is in the interests of both the UK and the EU, and identifies a series of key tests by which any deal agreed by October 2018 must be judged.
