  • General


The first meeting of the EU-UK Joint Committee, set up to implement the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, including the Protocol on Northern Ireland, takes place today, 30 March 2020.

The UK will be represented by Minister for the Cabinet Office Michael Gove, while the EU will be represented by the European Commission Vice-President Maros Sefcovic.

The UK has the option of delaying by extending the transition period, and thereby pausing all of the obligations of the Protocol.

The coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on these negotiations – today’s meeting will take place by videoconference.
