EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee
Inquiry launched on 24 March 2017
The inquiry will follow up on the Sub-Committee’s previous report on Brexit: UK-EU security and police cooperation by examining more closely how the Government’s intention to “bring an end to the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union in the UK” will affect the UK’s ability to sustain “deep cooperation” with the EU and its Member States in the fight against crime and terrorism. The Sub-Committee will explore this issue through a specific case study of the options for replacing the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) after the UK leaves the EU.
The inquiry will explore what the transition to a new arrangement could look like and whether an interim arrangement would be any easier to negotiate than a permanent replacement for the EAW. The Sub-Committee will also examine what a “bespoke” arbitration or dispute resolution mechanism, as envisaged by the Government, could look like in this area.
The Committee will begin taking oral evidence for this inquiry in late March.
Evidence given by The Rt Hon Professor Sir Francis Jacobs, Professor of Law, King's College London and former Advocate General, European Court of Justice; Professor Sir Alan Dashwood QC, Barrister, Henderson Chambers, Professor, City University and Emeritus Professor, Cambridge;
