Brexit round-up: European Union Bill published

Following the Supreme Court’s ruling that Parliament must vote on the process to trigger Article 50, the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill has been introduced to the House of Commons.

 

The Bill will give Theresa May the authority to formally trigger Article 50 prior to the deadline on 31 March 2017.

This comes ahead of the Great Repeal Bill which aims to transfer EU law into UK law to ensure the process of leaving the EU goes as smoothly as possible.

May cannot initiate exit negotiations to leave the EU until Parliament gives its full backing. 

Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland however do not need a say on the process.

David Davis, secretary of state for exiting the EU, said:

“The British people have made the decision to leave the EU and this government is determined to get on with the job of delivering it.”
