To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment she has made of the potential loss of access to the Schengen Information System on tackling crime after the UK leaves the EU.
Answer (Brandon Lewis)
The Prime Minister has made clear that one of the twelve objectives for the negotiations ahead will be to establish a new relationship with the European Union that includes practical arrangements on matters of law enforcement cooperation to tackle cross-border crime and to keep our people safe.
We continue to work closely with EU partners and we are examining the options for future cooperation on measures such as SIS II once the UK has left the EU but it is too early to speculate at this stage what future arrangements may look like.
