The EEA Agreement will no longer operate in respect of the UK when we leave the EU. However, at the March European Council we agreed with the EU that the UK is to be treated as a Member State for the purposes of international agreements for the duration of the implementation period. This includes the EEA Agreement. Alongside the Withdrawal Agreement, the EU undertook to notify its treaty partners that the UK is to be treated as a Member State for the purposes of EU international agreements during the implementation period.</p> more like this

Therefore, when the UK ceases to be a member of the European Union, British nationals will no longer hold EU citizenship, unless they hold dual nationality with another EU Member State.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>We have secured a deal that will safeguard the rights of UK nationals living in the European Union, so that they can continue living their lives broadly as they do now. Details of this agreement, which gives more certainty about residence, healthcare, pensions and other benefits, can be found in the Joint Report published in December.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>As we move forward into the next phase of negotiations we will continue to work to ensure the best possible outcome for the British people.</p><p> </p>

Such a deal will be of greater scope and ambition than any such agreement before it, so that it covers sectors crucial to our linked economies such as financial services. This will require detailed technical talks, but as the UK is an existing EU member state, both sides have regulatory frameworks and standards that already match, with full alignment on Day One of our exit.</p><p> </p><p>As the Prime Minister set out, we will not be seeking passporting, because we understand this is intrinsic to the single market of which we would no longer be member. Also, the Chancellor has been clear that a deal based on the EU’s existing third-country equivalence regimes would be inadequate for the scale and complexity of UK-EU trade.</p><p> </p><p>Instead, given the highly regulated nature of financial services, and our shared desire to manage financial stability risks, we will need a collaborative, objective framework that is reciprocal, mutually agreed, and permanent and therefore reliable for business.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has said that the principle of mutual recognition and reciprocal regulatory equivalence, provided it is objectively assessed, with proper governance structures, dispute resolution mechanisms, and sensible notice periods for market participants, could provide an effective basis for such a partnership.</p>

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>
