Scottish Parliamentary Committee calls for evidence on impact of Brexit negotiations

Released 14 September 2018

A Scottish Parliamentary Committee has issued a call for evidence on the impact of Brexit negotiations on Scotland’s individuals, businesses and organisations.

As the UK Government continues to negotiate the terms of the Article 50 withdrawal from the EU, the Scottish Parliament’s Culture, Tourism, Europe and External Affairs Committee wants to know what impact these negotiations, and the uncertainty created, has had on Scotland. In the call for evidence on Article 50 preparedness, the Committee is asking what these negotiations have meant in practice and what further support or guidance is needed from the UK or Scottish Governments. The Committee is looking for views on:

What impact the Article 50 negotiations have had upon individuals, businesses and organisations to date?

What preparations, if any, are being made by individuals, businesses and organisations for the range of scenarios which may result from the Article 50 negotiations?

What the impact of a no-deal outcome would be for Scottish individuals, businesses and organisations?

To what extent, the guidance issued by the European Commission and UK Government has been helpful in helping to prepare for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU?

What further support or guidance the Scottish Government, UK Government and / or European Commission should be providing to enable individuals, businesses and organisations in Scotland to prepare for the UK’s withdrawal from the EU?

The deadline for receipt of written submissions is Friday 12 October 2018 which should be sent electronically to
