Alongside the report published by the European Union Committee, the House of Lords European Union Committee has written to Department for Exiting the European Union Minister, Chris Heaton-Harris. The Committee highlights concerns over the government’s no-deal planning and casting doubt on a ‘managed no deal’.

In addition, another report has been published on the EU assurances to the UK on Brexit. It covers what the EU has offered through clarifications and assurances on the backstop and whether the EU would offer an extension to Article 50.
