Brexit Hub

The implications of the June 2016 referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union have created an unprecedented demand amongst our members for clarity at a time of contrasting messages from the media.

In our Brexit Hub we bring together commentary not only from the Franco-British Chamber and our members, but also information from sources we identify as being pertinent to this debate. We’ll also add links to Brexit themed events which the Franco-British Chamber and our partners organize.

For media or general enquiries please contact us on information@francobritishchamber.com


OFFICIAL PROCEDURES

The UK House of Commons of Library has prepared a handy guide to all the parliamentary reports prepared on the subject of Brexit. Find it here

⇒THE WHITE PAPER

The Government has published its White Paper setting out Theresa May’s plans for leaving the European Union.The document restates the 12 principles for Brexit that the Prime Minister set out in her Lancaster House speech last month.Brexit Secretary David Davis told the House of Commons that the UK seeks “a new strategic partnership” for when it leaves the single market and wants trade to be “as free and frictionless as possible” in this new arrangement.

⇒ALTERNATIVE WHITE PAPER PRESENTED BY UK CITIZENS IN EUROPE

On the day the government published its formal Brexit white paper, the document, drawn up by groups in Germany, France, Belgium, Spain and Italy, urged it to recognise as its key principle that UK citizens currently in the EU must be “expressly treated as continuing to have the same rights as they did before Brexit”

⇒HOUSE OF COMMONS HEALTH COMMITTEE

The Health Committee is taking an interest in British expats because Brits who are not in the French system can access medical care in France using the S1 form.  Under EU freedom of movement regulations, the costs of such medical care are paid by the NHS in the UK.  UK expats therefore represent a small proportion of the NHS’s total costs, but that could increase if those concerned were forced to return to the UK as a result of Brexit. If no suitable agreement is concluded between the UK and the EU by Brexit Day 2019, the S1 arrangements will immediately cease, and hundreds of thousands of UK citizens (mainly pensioners) will lose their health cover overnight.
