Draft Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union; Joint Statement and outline of the Political Declaration on the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, as agreed at negotiators' level.
The draft Withdrawal Agreement sets out the terms of the UK’s smooth and orderly exit from the European Union, including a Protocol on Northern Ireland. It reflects agreement in principle between the UK and EU negotiating teams on the full legal text.
Ahead of signature, this draft will be subject to a further review by UK and EU lawyers to ensure consistency as it is translated into all EU Member State languages. This may mean that legal terminology and article numbers will change. The Government intends to lay a final version of the agreement before Parliament once it is finalised.
The outline of the Political Declaration on the future relationship sets out progress on the scope of the framework for the future relationship. Negotiations are ongoing to finalise the Political Declaration.
