answer text <p>The clear position of the Government is that our notice under Article 50 will not be withdrawn. We have agreed in principle the terms of the UK’s smooth and orderly exit from the EU, as set out in the Withdrawal Agreement. We have also agreed the broad terms of our future relationship as set out in the outline Political Declaration. Both sides are determined to conclude the full Political Declaration by the end of November, bringing the Article 50 negotiations to a close.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>We have agreed a fair financial settlement with the EU as part of the draft Withdrawal Agreement. Our estimate, based on reasonable assumptions and publically available data, falls within the range of £35bn-£39bn, and the National Audit Office confirmed in April 2018 that these assumptions were reasonable. Details of the basis on which that figure was reached can be found in the EU-UK Joint Report, published on December 8th, 2017. The Chancellor of the Exchequer provided further details to the Treasury Select Committee in January 2018.</p> more like this

answer text <p>The UK Corporate Governance Code is the responsibility of the Financial Reporting Council. It is the responsibility of investors to assess the quality of reporting and engage with companies accordingly.</p><p> </p><p>The 2018 Code is a substantial revision and comes into force for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 January 2019. Reporting against the revised Code will therefore not be required until 2020 when companies publish their annual reports and accounts for the preceding year. However, the FRC intends to evaluate the extent of early adoption of the new Code in terms of reporting on the application of its Principles and compliance or otherwise with its Provisions and to publish its findings at the end of 2019.</p><p> </p><p>The FRC is the subject of an independent review being led by Sir John Kingman which is expected to report before the end of the year.</p><p> </p> more like this

answer text <p>Intelligence sharing between the British Government and overseas partners is important to the security of our country. The Government's vision for a security partnership with the European Union is set out in the White Paper: &quot;The future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union&quot; (July 2018). This includes a proposal for continued information and intelligence sharing, for example through the EU Intelligence and Situation Centre, European Union Satellite Centre and EU Military Staff. It is the longstanding policy of successive British Governments not to comment on the detail of intelligence matters.​</p> more like this
