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

I am conscious, my Lady, my Lords that obviously time is tight. In respect of devolution questions three and four, that is whether the prerogative, if it is operative, has been significantly interfered with by aspects of the 1998 Act, I am sure that doesn't do it justice, and the section 75 point, I am content to rely on our written submissions in respect of that and to adopt the written submissions on behalf of the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, which are rather fuller than my own.

These are all submissions that address devolution question one and two and the McCord question. And then I would like to conclude with making some general observations because obviously the outcome of, if I can call it the Miller litigation, is relevant, particularly for the Northern Ireland case, especially as respects the second devolution question.

Can I start with the McCord question.
