Public consultation on sanctions legislation
Today, HM Government launches a public consultation on its proposals for domestic sanctions legislation.
The consultation sets out the Government’s thinking on the overarching legal powers the UK will need to:
- meet its UN obligations to implement UN sanctions and
- impose its own domestic sanctions following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU
The consultation will run for nine weeks and will close on 23 June 2017.
Consultation responses should be sent to:
- Sanctions Consultation, IOD Sanctions Team, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, King Charles Street, London, SW1A 2AH or
