Transcripts (perhaps draft) of the Article 50 ‘Brexit’ Appeal hearings at the Supreme Court

Climate change, yes, emissions and reductions and initially as they noted in paragraph 3, the original convention, the UN Convention on Climate Change, had not set, as it were, hard edged reduction targets. You see that from paragraph 3, and the effect of the Kyoto protocol was to introduce those sorts of targets.

That protocol is signed on 29 April 1998, paragraph 4. There was a non-binding resolution of the Canadian House of Commons. There is the first parallel in relation to our accession, a non-binding resolution of the Canadian House of Commons calling for ratification on 10 December 2002. See paragraph 5. Paragraph 4, I am so sorry, it is the bottom of paragraph 4, my note was wrong.

So non-binding resolution of the House of Commons and then there was legislation ie after that, so the sequence is there, protocol is signed, non-binding resolutions, and then there is an Act, as you see from paragraph 6.
