Responding to the EU Home Affairs Sub-Committee report ‘Brexit: Judicial Oversight of the European Arrest Warrant’, Rt Hon David Jones MP, Former Brexit Minister and Board Member of Leave Means Leave said:
“The European Arrest Warrant is of value not only to the UK, but also to the continuing European Union. Indeed, the British contribution to the EU Justice and Home Affairs regime is arguably the strongest of any member state.
“After withdrawal, the UK will not be part of the EU and will not be subject to the EU treaties. It will therefore cease to be subject to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice (ECJ).
“It should be entirely possible for agreement to be reached on arrangements to regulate the new relationship between Britain and the EU on Justice and Home Affairs – for example, a joint tribunal composed of representatives of the ECJ and the UK Supreme Court. This will, of course, require good will on both sides.”
