Event Summary

At the Salzburg Summit European Council President Donald Tusk said that economic aspects of the UK Government’s Chequers plan will “not work.” Yet the Prime Minister has doubled down insisting that her plan is the only viable option. As the prospect of both sides failing to reach agreement rises, calls for a second referendum are also growing.

Some now advocate an alternative path to Brexit whereby the UK drops its Chequers plan, and seeks to retain its membership of the EEA as it leaves the EU, rejoining EFTA as an associate, before negotiating a free trade deal. Others have called for a so-called Super Canada deal, which would see the UK agree a looser deal with the EU than that proposed at Chequers.

Join us on Tuesday, October 9 from 12:30 to 14:00 in the Boothroyd Room of the House of Commons to discuss what’s next after Salzburg, with:

  • Nick Boles, MP for Grantham and Stamford and promoter of the “Norway then Canada” Better Brexit plan
  • Gisela Stuart, former MP for Birmingham Edgbaston, and co-Chair of Vote Leave’s Campaign Committee
  • Henry Newman, Open Europe Director

The discussion will be chaired by Juliet Samuel, columnist for the Daily Telegraph.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
