The Government has published a position paper on Collaboration on science and innovation. Having previously stated its intent to continue to collaborate with its European partners on major science, research and technology initiatives, this paper sets out the UK’s objectives for a science and innovation partnership agreement with the EU.

On 1 September 2017 the House of Commons Library published a briefing paper on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, which provides a useful analysis of the key features of the Bill. The paper also highlights areas of uncertainty and complexity in the Bill and is critical of the way some of the delegated powers are drafted, which will enable Government to make substantive policy changes (as opposed to necessary technical changes to resolve deficiencies) to retained EU law.
