LONDON: British officials will stop attending most EU meetings from September 1 except for those on"matters of ongoing national interest" such as security, the government said on Tuesday.

The ministry added that it made sense to"unshackle officials from these EU meetings to enable them to better focus their talents on our immediate national priorities". Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay said:"From now on we will only go to the meetings that really matter, reducing attendance by over half and saving hundreds of hours".The ministry said decisions on whether or not to attend a particular meeting would be made on a case by case basis.
