The UK government has published a draft text of the withdrawal agreement that concerns the UK’s exit from - and future relationship with - the European Union.

London partner Cynthia O’Donoghue has written an article for the International Association of Privacy Professionals’ publication Privacy Tracker, summarising the UK’s position under this draft agreement, and in light of the European Commission and the UK’s outline political declaration.
