11:07 pm
union it was essential to establish a mechanism to make sure that the future disputes can be resolved and of course from the european perspective it would be the best to have the european court of justice to play a role in all of that according to the u.k. there is no role for the european court of justice instead both sides seem to have agreed on our independent arbitration an independent panel that would in the future decide if there is a breach of the deal and if there has to be penalties or compensation but of course please let me add that you cannot rule out that one of the parties or maybe a company can go to court if it's things that it's necessary. we'll leave it there thank you both alexander phenomena in brussels charlotta johnson pill in london
