Chairman of Brexit Panel Meets with Key Figures in Whitehall

Last week, the Chairman of the Brexit Scrutiny Review Panel, Deputy John Le Fondré met key figures in London to discuss the implications of Brexit for Jersey and to understand how the UK Select Committees were conducting effective scrutiny of the Brexit negotiations.

During the course of a two-day visit, Deputy Le Fondré held meetings with individuals involved in the Scrutiny of Brexit, including Hilary Benn MP, Chair of the House of Commons Exiting the European Union Committee, and Lord Jay of Ewelme, the Acting Chair of the House of Lords European Union Committee.

Deputy John Le Fondré, said:

“During the course of two days I have had the valuable opportunity of meeting individuals at the sharp-end of the UK’s scrutiny process. This has enabled me to understand the challenges facing UK politicians in scrutinising Brexit, from which we can learn. They were also interested in Jersey’s present relationship with the EU and how Brexit may impact upon us.

It is important to remember, that whilst Jersey is not part of the EU, we still need to be mindful of the impact of Brexit, which depends on the outcome of the negotiations between the UK and EU.”
