To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what discussions he has had with Cabinet colleagues on the implementation of European Court of Justice judgments during the implementation period after the UK leaves the EU.

We have agreed with the EU that for the implementation period, we will continue to use the existing EU mechanisms for supervision and enforcement - and we will continue to follow Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) judgments. This is necessary so that there is only one set of changes for businesses and people. This does not change the fact that in the long term, outside of the EU, the UK will no longer be under the direct jurisdiction of the CJEU.

We have also agreed that the Withdrawal Agreement will establish a new Joint Committee through which both parties will be able to discuss and resolve any concerns that arise during the implementation period. It will, for example, provide the UK with a means to raise concerns regarding new laws, which we consider might be harmful to our interests. This will help ensure the implementation period operates smoothly, allowing us to resolve any issues promptly.
