Monday 10th June

The UK is now poised to change political and Brexit direction with a new prime minister. But what should that direction be?

On Monday 10th June, 12.30pm – 1.30pm Politeia will hold a special event with Briefings for Brexit to consider the options for the UK under a new Prime Minister and cabinet and questions such as:

  • What steps should the UK now take to leave on 31st October?
  • Can any part of the Withdrawal Agreement be salvaged or should it too leave the political stage with the departure of the prime minister?
  • Does the Political Declaration provide a sensible basis for future UK-EU relations?
  • Should there be a transition?

The event will mark the new publication by Martin Howe QC which considers the legal implications of the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration and proposes am alternative framework for leaving the EU and the future UK-EU relationship.

Speaking will be:

  • The Rt Hon David Jones MP, European Scrutiny Committee, Public & Constitutional Affairs Committee,  Minister of State, Department for Exiting the European Union
  • Martin Howe QC, 8 New Square
  • Barnabas Reynolds, Partner, Shearman & Sterling LLP. Author, A Blueprint for Brexit: The Future of Global Financial Services and Markets in the UK.

  • Sheila Lawlor, Politeia’s Director (to introduce and chair)

The joint event will take place on Monday 10th June, 12.30pm – 1.30pm (drinks reception for guests from 12.00pm).
