UKTiE Parliamentary Roundtable on Brexit and transport – Programme

The Framework for the UK-EU partnership for transport 

Roundtable discussion hosted by Lord Berkeley on Wednesday 18 July at 15:00 in the House of Lords, Committee Room G. It will be followed by a reception at 18:00. 

UKTIE have been calling for a UK position paper on transport and Brexit for some time, and so this is an important opportunity for all stakeholders to discuss the Government’s recently published Framework for the UK- EU partnership for transport, in the context of the Chequers Agreement and soon to be published White Paper. It’s a chance to spell out in detail what we expect in terms of a destination. It’s also a chance to discuss how we can work together to deliver it, all the while ensuring businesses can trade and the needs of customers are met. Finally, it represents a timely occasion to consider how we remain in the policy and regulatory framework driving seat post-Brexit.
