THREAD. I've seen the presentation given to Team Barnier yesterday by the UK Brexit negotiators on data protection after #Brexit. It puts "some" flesh on the bones of the PM's Mansion House speech (1)
UK said that the @ICOnews should remain part of the Supervisory Board of the #GDPR which comes into force this week. And UK should remain in the "one stop shop" system where people and businesses only deal with one national regulator. UK also going above and beyond #GDPR. (2)
UK says the EU should be able to judge the equivalence of British legislation but that a standard adequacy decision like New Zealand or Israel won't be enough for the breadth and depth of the future relationship. (3)
Get this wrong and it puts data-related EU business worth €36bn at risk, the UK warned. (4)
.@MichelBarnier has already ruled out a special data deal for the UK and it's not clear to what extent Task Force 50 will engage on this at this point in the talks but British officials will be glad some of their homework is starting to see the light of day. (5)

Some important comments on #Brexit from @campaignforleo at a modest press conference in Brussels. He said there's a good opportunity to clinch a deal over the next fortnight. (1)
On a UK-wide customs arrangement: "A lot of countries would take the view that any UK-wide arrangement is really a matter for the future relationship rather than a backstop which is for N Ireland and Ireland. Also there's the whole issue of the level playing field..." (2)
He pointed out there is currently no N Irish Assembly or Executive to approve any new regulatory checks, as reportedly being considered by the UK government. (3)

Contribution to this week's #Brexit diplomatic activity from @MichelBarnier in 20+ European newspapers today. EU offering ambitious partnership on trade+security with usual caveats and has to be progress on the Withdrawal Agreement. Does it sound mostly 👍 with a bit of 👎?
It includes your weekly reminder that the protection of Cornish Pasties is still an issue. (2)
And that the EU is prepared to rewrite the text of the Northern Irish backstop (3)
