Chris Skidmore Portrait The Minister for Universities, Science, Research and Innovation (Chris Skidmore) - Hansard

My noble Friend the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, Lord Duncan of Springbank—has today made the following statement:

The UK did not attend the Competitiveness Council in Brussels on 26 and 27 September 2019

The UK Government have decided that from 1 September until exit day, UK Ministers and officials will only attend EU meetings where the UK has a significant national interest in the outcome of the discussions.
