Documents issued following agreement reached on 11 March 2019

A Government statement confirming that political agreement has been reached on the withdrawal agreement, and the framework for the future relationship between the UK and the EU, published on 11 March 2019, laying these documents before Parliament.

Political Declaration laid before Parliament following political agreement.

The Government has laid before Parliament, under Section 13(1)(a) of the EU (Withdrawal Act) 2018:

(i) a statement that political agreement has been reached;

(ii) a copy of the negotiated withdrawal agreement;

(iii) a copy of the framework for the future relationship;

(iv) a joint statement supplementing the Political Declaration setting out the framework for the future relationship;

(v) a unilateral declaration; and

(vi) an instrument relating to the withdrawal agreement.

As set out in the Prime Minister’s statement of 26 November 2018, the withdrawal agreement laid before Parliament following political agreement being reached in November 2018 represented “a version of the text which has been agreed, but has not yet been formally signed. Before this formal signature takes place, the agreement must complete the European Union’s jurist-linguist translation process. During that time, minor technical corrections will be made to the text, though these changes will not affect the substance of the agreement”.

In line with that, the text has since been subject to minor technical corrections, for example to correct stylistic or grammatical errors. In addition, it has been put onto the EU’s standard template for international treaties as part of its publication in the EU’s Official Journal which has led to further formatting changes.
