The Withdrawal Act

Brexit: the politically endorsed deal

Following months of negotiations, 25 November 2018 finally saw the UK and the EU27 formally endorse the article 50 withdrawal agreement and the political declaration on the future relationship. There are a number of steps that now need to take place in order for the documents to be ratified by both sides ahead of 29 March 2019. This will be no mean feat, particularly as regards political uncertainty in the UK. Our publication from 19 November 2018 looks at what the route to ratification by the UK might look like, and the likely timescales involved.

In this publication, we take the opportunity to consider the substance of the two documents and outline the process for developing the future relationship if the deal is in fact ratified ahead of 29 March 2019.
