4. The following part (Articles 126-132) contains provisions relating to the transition period that extends to the end of 2020 and is necessary to move from withdrawal to future relations. The transitional period involves extending the application of existing EU legislation. The only important exception is that Britain will no longer be part of the EU`s institutions and bodies and will no longer participate in EU decision-making. The new relationship between the EU and the UK begins, provided an agreement has been reached, approved by the EU Member States, the European Parliament and the British Parliament. EU leaders approve the postponement of the date of Brexit to 31 January 2020, or earlier, if the UK and European parliaments approve the withdrawal deal by then. The other 27 EU member states are ready to authorise the Report in the UK (the UK is due to leave the EU on 29 March 2019). If the UK Parliament approves the withdrawal agreement by 29 March, Brexit will be delayed until 22 May to allow time to pass the necessary legislation. If the British Parliament does not approve the deal by then, Brexit will be delayed until 12 April. The political declaration provides that the EU-UK agreement on future relations will essentially be an economic and security partnership. In accordance with the political declaration, the 27 EU Member States agreed on 25 February 2020 on the negotiating mandate of the European Commission, which is negotiating on behalf of the Member States on future relations between the EU and the UNITED Kingdom. On this basis, the EU`s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, presented in mid-March a draft comprehensive agreement on the new partnership with the UK, to which other elements were added. You can find this and the others on the UK Task Force`s website.
In Finland, the UK`s exit from the EU is dealt with in different ministries according to their administrative branches. Finland`s positions are coordinated by the Prime Minister`s Office, which has presented several reports to Parliament. Below is a non-exhaustive list of documents on the UK`s planned withdrawal from the EU, documents relating to the UK and its position in the EU, and a list of useful links on the subject.
