Implementation period negotiating objectives: Erasmus+

Part of European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill – in the House of Commons at 7:00 pm on 8th January 2020.

Alert me about debates like this

‘(1) It shall be an objective of the Government to secure an agreement within the framework of the future relationship of the UK and the EU before the end of the implementation period that enables the UK to participate in all elements of the Erasmus+ programme on existing terms after the implementation period ends (“the Erasmus+ negotiations”).

(2) A Minister shall lay before each House of Parliament a progress report on the Erasmus+ negotiations within six months of this Act being passed.’—(Layla Moran.)

This new clause would require the Government to seek to negotiate continuing full membership of the EU’s Erasmus+ education and youth programme.

Brought up, and read the First time.

Question put, That the clause be read a Second time.
