To ask the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, what discussions he has had with his EU counterparts on (a) UK access to the Galileo project after the UK leaves the EU and (b) a rebate for UK monies paid to that project in the event that full access is not granted; and if he will make a statement.

The Secretary of State, along with his Cabinet colleagues, has had discussions with EU counterparts which have included the UK’s relationship with the Galileo programme.

The UK has made clear to our European partners our desire to continue the UK’s involvement in EU space programmes, including Galileo, provided that the UK can continue to access the requisite secure information, and that UK companies can continue to participate on a fair and open basis.

Our negotiating teams have regular discussions on all aspects of the withdrawal negotiations. We will not be giving a running commentary on live negotiations.
