Thirteenth Report Contents

Summary

This report addresses the following Agreement, laid before Parliament in accordance with section 20 of the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 (CRAG), which we report for the special attention of the House:

  • Framework Agreement, done at London on 12 November 2021, between the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Government of Ukraine on Official Credit Support for the Development of the Capabilities of the Ukrainian Navy (CP 553, 2021)

We report the UK-Ukraine Credit Support Agreement in this way on the grounds that it is politically important and gives rise to issues of public policy that the House may wish to debate prior to ratification. The Agreement signals important UK support to Ukraine and its territorial integrity. In the light of recent Russian military deployments to the Ukraine-Russia border and the resulting heightened tensions, reporting the Agreement to the special attention of the House will afford the Government an opportunity to set this Agreement in its context, and for Members of the House to debate it.

A motion which would provide for a debate on the UK-Ukraine Credit Support Agreement will be tabled in the Committee Chair’s name.

This report addresses a further Agreement considered at the same meeting, which we report for information:

  • The International Labour Organisation Violence and Harassment Convention 2019 (No. 190), done at Geneva on 21 June 2019 (CP 555, 2021)
