Read in full: Government summary of Christmas Eve’s historic Brexit agreement with the EU
- The Prime Minister’s Office last night published a summary of UK-EU trade deal
- The deal was announced yesterday after four years of tough Brexit negotiations
- Deal will be scrutinised and put through Parliamentary stages next Wednesday
It’s the essential Christmas read that you won’t find under your Christmas tree this year – a summary of Britain’s Brexit deal.
Boris Johnson last night hailed the UK’s free trade deal with the EU as a ‘small present’ to the British public this Christmas.
A 34-page summary was published by Number 10 at 4.30pm on Christmas Eve, hours before the Prime Minister issued his ‘Brexmas’ message.
The PM has lined up a crucial moment next Wednesday when he will try to push the legislation underpinning the historic agreement through all its Parliamentary stages.
He was last night given a double boost with a tentative welcome from Euro-sceptics and a call from Sir Keir Starmer for his Labour MPs to back it.
Ahead of next Wednesday’s debate, here, in full, is the Government’s UK-EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement Summary, first published on the website of the Prime Minister’s Office.
