On 15 November 2017, Philippe appeared before the International Trade Committee of the UK House of Commons in the context of that committee’s inquiry into the Continuing Application of EU Trade Agreements after Brexit. Philippe responded to questions by Members of Parliament on the possibility of “rolling over” current EU Free Trade Agreements after Brexit, the status of such agreements during a transitional period and the practical difficulties of (re)negotiating a large number of free trade agreements within the limited time frame left.

A more detailed report was prepared by MLex and can be accessed through their website (here). You can also watch the broadcast that was made of the session here.

The evidence given during the session by Philippe was also quoted in an article published in The Telegraph on the expected disruption in trade flows that will result from Brexit.
