Thirty cross-party Members of the European Parliament have signed an open letter to David Davis, warning that scrapping the Charter of Fundamental Rights could endanger the UK’s future relationship with the EU.
The letter stresses that MEPs will be closely involved in discussions over the future relationship between the UK and the EU, and that they will push to ensure that any future agreement protects human rights as set out in the Charter. This will also be taken into consideration when MEPs come to vote on the final withdrawal agreement.
