||<p>The Withdrawal Agreement ensures that UK based organisations will be able to bid
for funding, participate in and lead consortia and otherwise implement as normal EU
development programmes that are approved before December 2020 until they complete.

require eligibility for UK entities to bid for and implement programmes where the
UK funds. We regularly consult NGOs regarding their concerns to ensure we can support
our world-class development sector. I therefore urge the Hon. Gentleman to support
the Withdrawal Agreement.</p>
