European Partnership preparing submission to House of Commons inquiry

2nd November 2017

Following the recent announcement of an inquiry into Brexit and Local Government by the House of Commons Communities and Local Government Select Committee and the East of England European Partnership is preparing a submission response.

The inquiry’s Terms of Reference centre around four queries for which the committee is gathering the views of local government:

  • Risks and opportunities of Brexit for local government
  • Measures Government should take to provide stability for local government in light of Brexit
  • The powers that could be devolved to local authorities
  • To what extent the voice of local government is being heard in Brexit discussions.

Geoff Archer at the European Partnership is leading on the preparation of the submission and is keen to get your views on the inquiry’s topics.

Please get in touch with him ( as soon as possible as the deadline for submission of evidence is on 14 November and a near-finished draft is envisaged for Tuesday 7 November.
