Westminster went into recess this week, meaning any major Brexit developments will take place outside parliament for the next couple of months. Here's our round-up of this week’s key developments:
- See you in court: A two-day hearing on the UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill took place at the Supreme Court. David Mundell explained the UK Government was seeking clarity because the Scottish Parliament’s Presiding Officer, Ken Macintosh, believed the legislation was “not within the legal scope of the Parliament”. Advocate General for Scotland, Lord Keen, made his main submissions on the first day before James Wolffe defended the Bill on behalf of the Scottish Government. The Court also heard from the Welsh Counsel General and the Northern Irish Attorney General in support of the Scottish Parliament’s right to legislate as it did. No date has been set for delivery of the judgement.
