Barnier working on legal add-on to the Brexit deal

The EU’s chief negotiator has admitted that he is looking at drafting a joint interpretative instrument as an adjunct to the withdrawal agreement in order to try and help Theresa May get the Brexit deal through parliament. But Michel Barnier insisted that there would be no time limit or a unilateral right to exit. Mr Barnier told Die Welt: “What can exist is the commitment to limit the backstop through an agreement on the future relationship. And this in the form of an interpretive document […] If this document were combined with a written commitment from the British, then obviously it would have a much greater power.”
