A deal has been reached between negotiators from the European Union and United Kingdom on a future relationship, to follow the end of the Brexit transition period, which concludes at the end of this year.

The Greens/EFA group are calling for the European Parliament to have sufficient time to scrutinise all elements of this agreement before it is voted on.

The Greens/EFA group strongly criticise the overnight push to promote gas as a transitional technology. Now it comes down to the negotiations on European climate legislation.
