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

What it does is it gives power to the minister. It gives the minister power to make regulations, no more than that, and therefore I say that a decision to notify under EFTA does not raise, cannot raise, the same issues as to destruction of statutory rights as in this appeal, and of course it is also unrealistic, I say respectfully, to look at the EFTA notification in isolation. We were leaving EFTA because of course we were joining the EU.
