Following the historic defeat of the negotiated Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration on the Future Relationship in the House of Commons, Prime Minister Theresa May engaged in cross-party talks with opposition Parties including the SNP, Liberal Democrats and the DUP. She returned to Parliament to give a statement on her updated plan on Monday, 21 January 2019. Meanwhile, as the date for the UK withdrawal approaches without any consensus on the horizon, officials in Ireland, the UK and the EU are stepping up no-deal contingency planning.

Brexit Brief, published by the IIEA’s UK Project Group, covers developments in the on-going debate over the UK’s vote to Leave the European Union. It is part of a wider communications programme, which will be highlighted on the Institute’s website.
