star this property answer text <p>During the passage of the EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018 in the Commons the Government committed to providing a statement about the impact of all EU exit bills on equalities legislation (which includes provisions on disability as a protected characteristic). The Government’s commitment requires the relevant Minister to make and publish a statement for each EU exit bill indicating:</p><ol><li><p>whether the bill amends, repeals or revokes any part of the Equality Acts 2006 or 2010 or any secondary legislation made under those Acts and, if it does make such changes, an explanation of the effect of each change; and</p></li><li><p>that in relation to the policy which is given effect by the Bill, the relevant Minister “has had due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Equality Act 2010.”</p></li><li><p>that the Government will be making such a statement in respect of the WAB (which will be set out in the Explanatory Notes accompanying the Bill on its introduction); and this analysis has been carried out to inform decision-making on the Withdrawal Agreement and as preparation for the equality statement.</p></li></ol><p>The UK Government is committed to ensuring that there is no regression in equalities as we leave the EU. The Equality Act 2010 sets out wide-ranging equalities protections, and incorporates virtually all existing EU equalities law and Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) case law. In some areas, domestic legislation goes further than EU requirements - for example the public sector equality duty, which places a duty on public authorities to consider how their policies or decisions would affect people who are protected under the Equality Act. There are also domestic requirements that ensure non-discrimination in access to goods and services on grounds of disability.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Following productive discussions with the EU, a clear vision for the UK’s future relationship with the EU has been set out in the recent Political Declaration. This included an agreement that both parties will establish general principles, terms and conditions for the UK’s participation in future EU programmes in areas of shared interest, including in areas such as science and innovation, culture and education. The next generation of EU programmes are currently under negotiation in the EU. The Government will decide whether to participate in specific programmes in light of these negotiations and wider UK priorities.</p><p>Furthermore, under the terms of the proposed Withdrawal Agreement, UK entities' right to participate in EU programmes during the current Multiannual Financial Framework period, such as Horizon 2020 and Creative Europe, will be unaffected by the UK's withdrawal from the EU for the lifetime of projects financed by the current MFF. According to the Withdrawal Agreement, UK based organisations and individuals will be able to bid for funding, participate in and lead consortia, until programme closure.</p>

However, we will continue to do the responsible thing and prepare for all eventualities. This includes the potential impact of a no deal scenario on UK nationals currently resident in the EU.</p><p>The Office for National Statistics calculates there are approximately 780,000 UK nationals who currently live in the EU, excluding Ireland. Some of them could decide to return to the UK depending on a range of factors including action by EU member states and personal circumstances.</p><p>On 19 December, the European Commission reconfirmed their commitment to putting citizens’ rights first and called on Member States to take a generous approach to the rights of UK nationals in the EU. The majority of Member States, including France, Spain and the Netherlands, have set out their no deal plans and provided reassurances that the rights of UK nationals will be protected. The Government hopes that other Member States will set out the detail of their plans to protect the rights of UK nationals, in line with our assurances to EU citizens living in the UK, so there should be no need for them to leave.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Prime Minister has been clear that the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) will end as we leave the EU.</p><p>The Withdrawal Agreement ensures that the UK’s membership in the EU is wound down in an orderly way. It establishes a time-limited implementation period that provides a bridge to the future relationship, allowing businesses to continue trading as now until the end of 2020. As the implementation period is designed to ensure continuity and certainty for citizens and businesses, EU institutions, including the CJEU, will retain their current functions in respect of the UK. After the implementation period, UK courts will no longer be able to refer questions to the CJEU, other than for a time-limited period on the important matter of citizens rights and on very specific aspects of our exit from the EU budget. Disputes between the UK and the EU will not be resolved by the CJEU, but by a Joint Committee of the parties and an independent arbitration panel. The CJEU’s role will be strictly limited to the interpretation of EU law, consistent with the principle that the court of one party cannot determine disputes between the two.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The agreement preserves the economic and constitutional integrity of the United Kingdom, upholds the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement, and ensures people and businesses that rely on an open border between the Northern Ireland and Ireland can continue living their lives and operating as they do now. It does so through a temporary single UK-EU customs territory or through an option to extend the implementation period for a short period of time until the new economic relationship is in place.</p><p>The Government is clear the backstop is an insurance policy that no-one ever wants to come into effect. Both the UK and the EU are fully committed to having our future relationship in place by 1st January 2021 and the Withdrawal Agreement has a legal duty on both sides to use best endeavours to avoid the backstop ever coming into force. Despite this, if the future relationship is not ready by the end of 2020, the UK would not be forced to use the backstop. The UK would have a clear choice between the backstop or a short extension to the Implementation Period. If the backstop was entered into, the legal text is clear that it should be temporary and that the Article 50 legal base cannot provide for a permanent relationship. There is also a termination clause, which allows the backstop to be turned off when we have fulfilled our commitments on the Northern Ireland border, and there is a unilateral right to trigger a review through the Joint Committee and the ability to seek independent arbitration if the EU does not use good faith in this process.</p>
