The flags of EU countries flying.

This working group is producing motions and papers on a rolling basis for future conferences.

The group is tasked with carrying out a programme of work, including consulting widely within the party, to determine the best possible future framework for the UK-EU relationship across all policy areas, with the aims of:

  1. Demonstrating the benefits to UK citizens and businesses of a much closer relationship compared to the government's inadequate measures;
  2. Recommending roadmaps for the UK to rejoin the Customs Union, Single Market and other EU agencies and programmes as appropriate; and
  3. Maximising public support for eventual UK membership of the EU.
