star this property answer text <p>The annexes to the Protocol set out the small fraction of EU rules that would apply in the event that the backstop was in effect - though as we have been clear, we fully expect alternative arrangements to be in place to avoid the need for its use by the end of 2020.</p><p>In that scenario, the only EU rules that apply would be the fraction strictly necessary to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland and give frictionless access to the EU market for all goods from Northern Ireland’s businesses. That includes, as we have set out in the explainer to the Agreement and other accompanying documents, product standards on industrial goods and agricultural goods. But the net effect in a backstop would be significantly increased powers and flexibility for a restored Northern Ireland Assembly and for Parliament. For example, the Protocol is clear that in the case of non-harmonised goods (such as clothing), the placing of goods on the market would be a matter for the United Kingdom.</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>

The publication of the Political Declaration in November was a significant milestone, and outlined a clear vision for our future relationship with the EU, including cooperation on areas of shared interest such as science and innovation. The Withdrawal Agreement was also published in November and both documents were endorsed by EU Member States at the special European Council on Sunday 25 November. This provided clarity to industry on the terms of our implementation period, during which UK healthcare providers would be able to continue participating in European Reference Networks.</p><p>The UK would like to explore participation in European Reference Networks beyond 2020 as part of detailed negotiations on our future relationship. We believe that the UK’s continued participation in these networks benefits citizens, researchers and patients across the UK and the EU, and we look forward to discussing this with the EU.</p><p> </p>
