Relations between the countries of Britain

It is commonplace for independent countries to be members of wider structures involving neighbouring countries, ranging from free-trade agreements to loose political unions such as the Nordic Union between the Scandinavian countries, through to confederations such as Benelux (a union between Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg) and, indeed, the European Union itself.

The close links that Wales and Scotland have over many centuries formed with England make the case for a radically changed but close relationship between the nations of these islands as well as the rest of Europe.

The statutory National Commission, established by the Self-Determination Act, will be tasked taking soundings on future relations and structures between the nations of Britain.
