Robin Walker: The Prime Minister has always been clear that in leaving the EU, we will bring about an end to the jurisdiction of the CJEU in the UK. The proposal set out in the White Paper delivers on that commitment.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit (23 Jul 2018)

Robin Walker: Once an agreement is reached between the UK and the EU on the shape of the future relationship, there is no reason to expect that either party will break the commitments the UK and the EU have made to each other.

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: UK Relations With EU (19 Jul 2018)

Robin Walker: State aid and public procurement are separate issues. The state aid rules only touch on state support which has not been given on commercial terms.
