The Brexit Competition Law Working Group (BCLWG) has today published an Issues Paper. You can download a copy of the document below.
We set up the BCLWG following the referendum with the aim of fostering public debate and informing government policy on implications of Brexit for competition law and policy. This Issues Paper sets out what we see as key legal and policy questions within the competition sphere that HM Government will need to examine when considering its options in respect of Brexit.
We are keen (a) to obtain feedback from stakeholders and interested persons on whether these are the right questions on which to focus at this stage and (b) to encourage submissions and views that will feed into our final report, which we plan to publish and deliver to Government early in 2017.
We intend to hold a number of roundtable discussions during November and December 2016. Details of these roundtables will be posted on this website.
Comments and submissions on the Issues Paper are requested by 30 November 2016. Details of how to contribute can be found here
