Type: Acts of the European Union: The European Parliament Resolution on the state of play of negotiations with the United Kingdom

Authority: European Authorities - European Union: European Parliament

Date: 12/13/2017

Subject: The European Parliament points out that there are still outstanding issues with respect to providing for an orderly withdrawal of the UK from the EU, which must be resolved before the Withdrawal Agreement can be finalised, and notes that, once finalised, the Withdrawal Agreement needs to be set out in a clear and unambiguous legal text; the Parliament points out that these outstanding issues concern: extending coverage of citizens’ rights to future partners, ensuring that the administrative procedure is light-touch, declaratory in nature and free of charge, placing the burden of proof on the UK authorities to challenge the declaration, and enabling families to initiate the procedure by means of a single form, providing for the binding character of the CJEU decisions in relation to the interpretation of citizens’ rights provisions, as well as for the role of the future independent national authority (ombudsman) created to act on citizens’ complaints, guaranteeing future free movement rights across the whole EU for UK citizens currently resident in an EU-27 Member State, ensuring that the commitments made with respect to Northern Ireland / Ireland are fully enforceable
