Johnson’s spokesperson said the meeting of the two sides’ negotiating committees will happen on March 30. The meeting will be chaired by Michael Gove, Minister for the UK Cabinet Office to review understanding and implementation of the Withdrawal Agreement. The UK is considering an online or telephone meeting.

The UK government last October agreed on the revised 110-page Withdrawal Agreement, an effort to boost parliament’s ratification of Brexit.
