As set out in the Political Declaration, the Government has agreed the outline terms of a comprehensive future security partnership with the EU including a close, reciprocal relationship on internal security.

The Political Declaration includes arrangements for the exchange of Passenger Name Records data, DNA, fingerprints and vehicle registration data, alongside streamlined procedures for extradition arrangements. It also confirms a shared commitment to continued cooperation between law enforcement bodies, including with Europol and Eurojust.

The exact terms and detail of the future relationship will be a matter for the next phase of negotiations.
