Public Law Project: Report Stage Briefing for Peers on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill

Ahead of the Report Stage of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill in the House of Lords, Wednesday 18th April 2018, PLP has prepared a briefing paper for Peers highlighting our key concerns with the Bill.

PLP takes no position on the UK’s decision to leave the European Union. Our work around the EU (Withdrawal) Bill is intended to ensure that Brexit is a democratic success and Parliamentary sovereignty is strengthened; to minimise the availability of broad delegated legislative powers and ensure they are used appropriately; and to secure the retention of fundamental rights protections.  

The Bill raises a vast number of issues of constitutional importance. PLP’s briefing paper does not attempt to address all of these issues but instead focuses on three areas where our input, informed by our experience in the field of public law, might make the most useful contribution to debate on the Bill.
