Jonathan Djanogly raises concerns about EU retaliatory measures

11th July 2016

Jonathan Djanogly raises concerns about EU retaliatory measures citing the EU response to Switzerland’s referendum to cap immigration.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)

Switzerland had a referendum that showed it was determined to cap immigration, but because of protracted negotiations with the EU, the EU decided to start retaliatory measures, including the country’s removal from the Erasmus scheme. How long, therefore, does the Minister think we have after activating article 50 before the EU starts retaliatory measures on us?

John Penrose

My hon. Friend asks an extremely pertinent question. That will be one of the matters that the incoming Prime Minister and her negotiating team will factor into their decisions about the timing and order of play of the negotiations. I am afraid that I cannot offer my hon. Friend much more than that now, but the point he raises must be an important case study that will be front and centre of people’s consideration as the decisions are made.
