Parliamentary Committee on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union - Brexit Specialized Agency

Delegates in this SA will be tasked with guiding the United Kingdom out of the European Union. Boris Johnson has decided to form a last-minute multi-party committee as a last ditch effort to prevent the dreaded crash out of the Eurozone, with the hopes that the MPs will be able to reach some agreement on the rights of EU citizens in the UK and prevent chaos at the Irish border. Delegates in this committee will have to represent their party and their constituency, while also considering the best interest for the British public in this turbulent era.
