Article 151.Participation of the United Kingdom in the EIB Group after the date of withdrawal 119.In as regards fisheries and the negotiation and agreement of total allowable catches (TACs) under the Common Fisheries Policy, the United Kingdom shall be `consulted on fishing opportunities in relation to the United Kingdom`125 and may `submit comments` to the Commission before drawing up its annual communication on fishing opportunities fishing126. Eu Policy The declaration sets the framework for the future relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom and reflects the government`s willingness to conclude an ambitious, broad, deep and flexible partnership in the field of trade and economic cooperation with the EU, with a focus on a free trade agreement with the EU, in addition to security agreements and other areas of cooperation. 128.However, beyond the restrictions on this freedom, such as the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland (the so-called final guarantee), questions remain as to the exact application of this provision. For example, it does not talk about the extent of the UK`s freedom to renegotiate during the transition the countless EU agreements that deal with issues for which responsibilities are shared between the EU and individual member states. 120.In our Report Brexit: Deal or No Deal, we have identified two safe ways that are in line with the provisions of Article 50 TEU, which provide that a “standstill deadline” could be set after the withdrawal date in order to reassure citizens and businesses and save time to reach an agreement on future relations. Either the European Council could unanimously approve a request for an extension of the negotiation period, or the Agreement provided for in Article 50 could set a date after 29 March 2019 for the entry into force of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom. . . .
