EP adopts plan to keep EU funding for UK in case of no-deal Brexit

At its plenary session on 22 October 2019, the European Parliament (EP) adopted a draft regulation extending the contingency plan for a no-deal Brexit to 2020. The plan had previously been limited to 2019. The aim of this extension is to minimise any negative impact that the UK's withdrawal may have on beneficiaries of EU funding and on the European Union budget in the case of a no-deal scenario. The measure includes programmes such as Horizon 2020, Erasmus+ and agriculture and regional policies. The proposal would make it possible to continue payments to UK beneficiaries throughout 2020, provided the UK continues to pay its contributions and accepts the necessary controls and audits. The draft recommendation was adopted with 543 votes in favour, 30 against, and 46 abstentions.
