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

It is interesting if we are trying to understand the context in which the 1972 Act was enacted, the passage you gave us from Hansard goes on with the responsible minister quoting the previous Prime Minister to tell us that:

"It is important to realise that if the law is mainly concerned with industrial and commercial activities, with corporate bodies rather than private individuals, by far the greater part of our domestic law would remain unchanged."

That is then endorsed in the next couple of paragraphs. It is been enacted in a very different world.
