„The Work of the House of Lords Committees“ – Parliamentary Scrutiny of Brexit

11. März 2020 19:00

Rosanna Barry

The European Union Committee of the House of Lords scrutinises the UK Government’s policies and actions in respect of the EU, including its policies on Brexit; considers and seeks to influence the development of policies and draft laws proposed by the EU institutions; and more generally represents the House of Lords in its dealings with the EU institutions and other Member States.

The lecture will discuss the structure and function of the House of Lords, and in particular, the role of its select committee on the European Union. Rosanna will discuss the Committee’s work before the 2016 Referendum, the period running up to the UK’s departure from the EU, and opportunities and challenges for the rest of 2020.

She joined the House of Lords Administration in 2017 as a policy advisor to the EU Internal Market Committee and was later promoted to committee clerk (head of secretariat).
