Tynwald to debate Brexit Impact tomorrow

The Brexit result was a shock and probably one of most significant events in recent history.

The Isle of Man is not in the EU, but our relationship with the EU is defined by protocol 3 which ends when the UK leaves.
Protocol 3 gives us access to the single market for goods but not for services, and an agreement which allows free movement of people. Critical to the Isle of Man is that we are not forgotten when new treaties are signed with the UK.
The impact of Brexit on the Isle of Man will be debated tomorrow Tuesday June 28th.

There are two reports, the first interim report on the potential consequences of Brexit for the Island, and the second report, setting out how a new relationship between the UK and the EU might function, as well as explaining how other small European jurisdictions manage their relationships with the EU.

    Dear Ray, Many thanks for the web links—very helpful in clarifying the position in relation to the possible options/outcomes for the IOM.
