Other agreements, including on wine, spirits and marine equipment have been signed between the UK and US to ensure continuity as the UK leaves the EU.</p><p> </p><p>These agreements do not cover the bulk of UK trade with the US (our single largest bilateral trading partner).

It will be for Member States to determine how they implement their rights and obligations under the Withdrawal Agreement in the context of their domestic law. It would not be appropriate for the UK government to speculate publicly about individual Member States’ intentions in this regard.</p><p>After the entry into force of the European Arrest Warrant, all Member States of the European Union have remained parties to the European Convention on Extradition and continue to operate it with other Council of Europe members who are not Member States of the EU.</p> more like this

It sets out that the UK and EU should consider arrangements to address travel by private motorists in our future negotiations. We intend that this will cover the both the recognition of driving licences as well as the Blue Badge scheme.

In August, my Rt Hon Friend the Prime Minister tasked the UK Space Agency, with the full support of the Ministry of Defence, to develop options and set aside £92m for the necessary Engineering and Design studies to refine and test these initial estimates.</p><p>If the UK wished to participate in the Galileo project from 2020 this would be a matter for future negotiations, as it would be for all programmes. Member States do not contribute to individual EU programmes but to the EU budget as a whole. The UK’s financing share of the EU budget is based on a number of elements, such as the UK rebate and our customs duties transfers to the EU and fluctuates with changes to the levels and types of EU spending.
