To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the effects of the UK's departure from the EU on the participation of UK workers in European Works Councils.

At the end of the EU exit implementation period, the Government amended the Transnational Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations 1999, so that no new requests to set up a European Works Council (EWC) can be made but retained the regulatory framework for existing EWCs in the UK to continue to operate. No formal assessment of the impacts of EU exit on participation in EWCs has been made.
