UK delegation to new UK-EU Parliament­ary Partnershi­p


The United Kingdom’s parliament­ary delegation to the newly created UK-EU Parliament­ary Partnershi­p Assembly (PPA) has been confirmed. Consisting of 21 MPs and 14 peers, the UK delegation will be chaired by Sir Oliver Heald MP and joined by 35 MEPs from the European Parliament. The PPA was establishe­d under the terms of the

UK-EU Trade and Co-operation Agreement (TCA), and acts as a forum for the two parliament­s to exchange views. It is expected to meet and report twice a year. Heald said: “The PPA will have a crucial role to play in ensuring there is proper parliament­ary oversight of the important Trade and Co-operation Agreement.

“I’m looking forward to the first meeting of the PPA and working with our colleagues in the European Parliament to find new ways of co-operating with our closest neighbour and largest trading partner.”

The full membership can be found in the written ministeria­l statement made by the

Prime Minister on 26 January 2022.
