The Government has recently set out proposals for an ambitious agreement to support our future cooperation with the EU on security and law enforcement.

Agreeing effective arrangements for surrendering individuals who seek to evade justice by fleeing across country borders will form an important element of our future partnership with the EU.

The Government’s proposals are set out in full in “Security, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice – a future partnership paper” which was published on 18 September available on the gov.uk website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/security-law-enforcement-and-criminal-justice-a-future-partnership-paper
