We will set out further details of the parliamentary group in due course. The Technical Group has met twice, on 20 June and 17 July, and the Business Group has met once, on 26 June. Both groups will continue to meet throughout August and September.</p><p>The Technical Group is made up of technical experts in trade and customs and brings together individuals from the public and private sector, and academia, who have expertise on issues spanning law, customs, supply chains, cross-border trade and technology. The members represent a broad spectrum of views and expertise, all of which will be needed to achieve our economic, fiscal and security objectives in the unique circumstances of the Northern Ireland land border. A full list of members can be found on <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/technical-advisory-group-on-alternative-arrangements-to-the-backstop-established" target="_blank">gov.uk</a>.</p><p>The Business Group is made up of businesses and trade unions to ensure their experience and on-the-ground knowledge informs developments. This includes cross-sector representatives from Ireland, Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK. The members have been chosen based on their comprehensive backgrounds in cross-border supply chains; this includes large companies who can represent the views of themselves and their suppliers, as well as smaller companies who rely on cross-border “just in time” supply chains. A full list of members can be found on <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/news/business-group-established-to-look-at-brexit-backstop-alternatives" target="_blank">gov.uk</a>.</p><p>We will set out further details of the Parliamentary group in due course.</p><p> </p>
