The prime minister revealed the first draft of the UK’s withdrawal agreement from the EU on 14 November, to much controversy and speculation from her peers. We analyse the policies and look at how they could affect the creative industries in the transition period following 29 March 2019, and beyond.
Following the launch of Theresa May’s draft Brexit deal this week, UK Government has been in chaos with backlash and MP resignations currently in full swing.
While the draft deal has been approved by the Cabinet, it still needs to be approved by the European Union (EU), and then a final vote needs to be taken by UK Parliament to secure it.
There is still the chance that MPs could vote against the deal, giving the prime minister and her Cabinet 21 days to come up with a new plan and re-negotiate. This also opens up the possibility of the UK leaving the EU on 29 March 2019 with no deal whatsoever.
