The Solicitor General was before the Justice Committee this week and I wanted his assurances that we would remain part of the European Arrest Warrant and EUROJUST.

The Solicitor General went as far as to admit that no deal would undermine our safety and security and how the deal before Parliament is simply an aspiration and not legally binding.

On EUROJUST the minister made it abundantly clear that we are huge beneficiaries of it. He pointed out that in 2017 the UK was involved in 82 coordination meetings, coming only second to Germany for involvement and we were involved in at least a quarter of joint investigating teams. This is a vital service that we are set to lose under current proposals.
