UK based organisations and individuals will be able to bid for funding, participate in and lead consortia, until programme closure, replacing the need for the government’s existing funding guarantee.</p><p>We want to build on the progress made in recent negotiations and continue to pursue a far-reaching relationship on science and innovation with the EU, which is mutually beneficial for the UK, the EU, our scientific communities, and our citizens.

star this property answer text <p>The Government has negotiated the withdrawal agreement for the whole UK family. There were some circumstances which were specific to Gibraltar which meant we also held talks between the UK Government, Government of Gibraltar and Spain. This led to positive agreement on issues such as <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/760552/memorandum-of-understanding-police-customs-cooperation-en-es.pdf" target="_blank">cooperation on policing</a>, <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/760550/memorandum-of-understanding-environmental-matters-en-es.pdf" target="_blank">environmental matters</a>, <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/760551/memorandum-of-understanding-tabacco.pdf" target="_blank">tobacco</a> and <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/760549/memorandum-of-understanding-citizens-rights-en-es.pdf" target="_blank">citizens’ rights</a>. These agreements underpin the Gibraltar Protocol to the Withdrawal Agreement.</p><p>In concluding the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK wrote to confirm the position we had always held, that Article 184 is without prejudice to the territorial scope and form of future agreements with the EU. However, as a matter of firm UK policy, we will only agree a deal on the future which works for the whole UK and we will negotiate a deal that works for Gibraltar as part of future negotiations.</p><p>The Prime Minister said on 26 November, ‘the Government stood by Gibraltar and resisted changes to the Withdrawal Agreement that the Spanish Government wished to make. We are clear that Gibraltar’s sovereignty will not change. It has not changed and will not change. We are proud that Gibraltar is British’.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As outlined in the Future Relationship White Paper in July and the Political Declaration on the Framework for the Future Relationship between the EU and the UK Government, published on 22 November, the EU and the UK have agreed that the UK will pursue bilateral agreements. These will be undertaken with France, Belgium and the Netherlands to ensure the continued smooth functioning and operation of services through the Channel Tunnel, and with Ireland to do the same for the Belfast‑Dublin Enterprise line.</p><p>Outside of these cross-border services, the UK will have the flexibility to shape its own domestic railway legislation to meet the needs of its passengers and freight shippers, and reflect the unique characteristics of the rail network within the UK.</p><p>Continued market access for transport between the UK and the EU, including for bus and coach travel, is in our mutual interests. We will seek to agree cross-border bus services as part of the future relationship with the EU. In the event of no deal, as set out in the Department for Transport Technical Notice ‘Operating bus or coach services abroad if there’s no Brexit deal’, the UK would seek to put in place bilateral agreement with EU countries.</p><p>Consultations with industry have been ongoing, and we will continue to take on board the views of stakeholders.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Northern Ireland Protocol to the Withdrawal Agreement, at Article 13, contains a commitment that the UK and the EU will respectively maintain the necessary conditions for North-South cooperation following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. This includes tourism, which is a formal area of cooperation agreed by the North-South Ministerial Council (NSMC) under Strand II of the Belfast Agreement.</p><p>The Attorney-General’s legal commentary on the Agreement made clear that Article 13 does not alter the remit or functions of the NSMC or the North-South Implementation bodies, nor does it alter arrangements under Strand II of the 1998 Agreement in any way. The Protocol acknowledges that the UK and Ireland may continue to make new arrangements that build on the provisions of the 1998 Agreement in other areas of North-South cooperation on the island of Ireland. In accordance with the position set out in the recitals, the functions and safeguards of the Assembly and the NSMC (including cross-community provisions) will be respected in full.</p><p>Thus the Protocol and its recitals recognise that any new arrangements - whether expansion or diminution in areas of cooperation - are a matter for the Northern Ireland Executive and Irish Government alone, through the NSMC. The status, functions, and remit of Tourism NI and Tourism Ireland are completely unaffected.</p><p>It is important also to note that the Article also does not require any application of EU law in Northern Ireland. It is therefore exempt from the specific EU supervision and enforcement provisions set out in the Protocol. Cooperation will remain a matter for two sovereign jurisdictions on the island of Ireland to decide in accordance with the respective legal regimes.</p><p>The most significant effect of the Withdrawal Agreement in relation to tourism is to ensure that, under the Common Travel Area arrangements, individuals can continue to travel freely between the United Kingdom, including Northern Ireland, and Ireland.</p><p> </p>
