You may wish to respond on some or all of the issues outlined above, or to raise other issues that you consider to be of relevance to the Committee’s planned inquiry. Evidence should be reasonably brief and typewritten (preferably normally no more than 4-6 sides of A4 in total).
The initial deadline for receipt of written submissions is 25 August, although the Committee will welcome further evidence that responds to developments relating to the Article 50 negotiations. Owing to the timescale normally required for the processing and analysis of evidence, late submissions will only be accepted with the advance agreement of the Clerk.
The Committee prefers to receive written submissions electronically and in a form accessible by MS Word. These should be sent to:
