Article 50

This morning in the Court of Session, there will be a hearing on whether to give permission to proceed with a petition lodged by Andy Wightman MSP, Ross Greer MSP, Alyn Smith MEP, David Martin MEP, Catherine Stihler MEP, Christine Jardine MP and Joanna Cherry MP. The petition concerns a question in law - can Article 50 be unilaterally revoked by the UK Parliament? It asks the Court to refer this question to the Court of Justice of the European Union - the only Court than can provide an answer. Key documents are linked below.
