The House of Lords Constitution Committee has today published its long-awaited report on the EU Withdrawal Bill which it described as ‘constitutionally unacceptable’. The Bill is fundamentally flawed and needs to be rewritten in several ways, peers have said, as the House of Lords prepares to debate the legislation this week.
The committee said that the bill as it currently stands risked “undermining legal certainty” and should be substantially changed, even though it has already been voted through the House of Commons.
Richard Gordon QC gave oral evidence to the committee alongside Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury. The report can be accessed here.
