EU justice chief Vera Jourova will push for a new data access agreement with the United States when she meets next week with her American counterpart, amid growing transatlantic tensions over issues including the Iran nuclear agreement and trade. Jourova said in an interview on Friday (18 May) that she will use “all legal ways of lobbying” to convince US Attorney General Jeff Sessions that the US and EU should create an arrangement for law enforcement authorities to demand user data from technology firms if they need information stored in another country to investigate crimes. “We have to insist on being the partner as the European Union for the United States for the reciprocal exchange of data,” she said. The EU justice Commissioner has been trying to negotiate such an arrangement with the US since last year. But her efforts were sidelined when President Trump approved new legislation known as the CLOUD Act in March that allows only for bilateral deals with … [Read more...] about Jourova to press for EU-US data sharing deal next week
The deal which fell in line with the former Home Secretary's "hostile environment" for immigrants, has been shelved following "serious concerns" raised by a committee of MPs. Immigration officials will no longer have the power to check NHS records of people the Home Office wished to deport. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the government departments meant the NHS had to reveal names and addresses of people the Home Office suspected of being in the country illegally.

By Trend Britain has "no intention of walking away" from the Iran nuclear deal despite the United States pulling out, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says. Johnson told MPs the UK would "strive to preserve the gains" made by the international agreement, BBC reported. The 2015 deal curbed Iran's nuclear activities in return for the lifting of UN, US and EU sanctions. US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday he will pull out, describing it as "defective at its core". Labour accused the president of a "reckless, senseless and immoral act of diplomatic sabotage". Other signatories to the agreement - the UK, France, China, Russia and Germany - say they remain committed to it. Iran has said it will try to salvage the agreement, but would restart uranium enrichment if it could not. Mr Johnson - who had travelled to the United States in a last-minute attempt to persuade the Trump administration not to ditch the deal - told MPs the responsibility was now on the president to set … [Read more...] about Iran nuclear deal: UK won’t walk away, says Boris Johnson
Today marks 20 years since the historic deal known as the Good Friday Agreement was signed in Northern Ireland, bringing peace to a land which had known bombs and bullets for generations. British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his Irish counterpart Bertie Ahern signed the pact which would bring together sides who had been at war with each other into a power-sharing deal in Belfast. The Agreement won the support of the people of Northern Ireland in a referendum, signalling the end of years of sectarian conflict which had, by the mid 1990s, claimed more than 3,500 lives. The agreement marked the beginning of a power-sharing government between nationalists and unionists, and saw the Irish Republican Army - known as the IRA - and loyalist gunmen decommissioning their weapons. Paramilitary prisoners were also released early from prison as part of the deal. SUBSCRIBE AND FOLLOW NEWS Get top stories and blog posts emailed to me each day.
