Brexit Brief 76

IIEA6th December 20191min
Issue 76 of the IIEA Brexit Brief notes the current state of play in the Brexit debate and collates relevant news from Ireland, the UK, and the rest of the EU.

All the political parties have now launched their election manifestos, which include their positions on Brexit. Meanwhile, the party leaders have taken part in televised debates, covering a wide range of topics of interest to the electorate, including Brexit, Scottish independence, the NHS, alleged antisemitism in Labour, and the trustworthiness of the Prime Minister.

In Brussels, the European Parliament voted to approve the College of 27 new Commissioners, proposed by Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. The UK has still not proposed a Commissioner, in spite of its Treaty obligations to do so.

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.
