A new Brexit deal - what has changed and what happens next?
22 October 2019
The EU and the UK have agreed a new Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration with limited – but important – changes to the previous deal.
The UK Prime Minister has succeeded on a first Parliamentary vote in favour of the legislation to implement the new deal but has failed to secure an accelerated timetable for the passing of that legislation. The EU now has to consider the UK's request for an extension of the Article 50 period.
The following are blackline documents comparing:
(i) the revised Political Declaration; and
(ii) the Northern Ireland Protocol.
