House of Lords Hansard

Brexit: Progress of Negotiations

12 September 2017
Volume 783

    Motion to Approve

    Tabled by

  • That this House believes that there has been a lack of progress towards agreement on issues relating to the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union; calls on Her Majesty’s Government to lay before both Houses of Parliament a statement of the strategy and principles which underpin their negotiations on withdrawal, transition and future relationship, including key issues such as the Irish border, accompanied by a plan on full involvement of the devolved administrations in the development of United Kingdom negotiating policy and consultation of consumer, employer and trade union organisations; and calls on Her Majesty’s Government to seek an agreement as a matter of urgency with the European Union on comprehensive interim arrangements which maintain United Kingdom participation in the single market, the customs union, and security frameworks during a transitional period during which the future United Kingdom-European Union relationship is to be negotiated and implemented.

  • My Lords, the purpose of my Motion was to help to frame tonight’s debate, which it has done, so I shall not move it.

  • Motion not moved.

    House adjourned at 9.41 pm.
