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

My Lord, I will not do that. Can I give you paragraphs that we object to and we say have nothing to do with the dispensing principle: paragraph 40, paragraph 45, paragraph 55(b) and paragraph 56. The point being that we ask ourselves, if my learned friend is in error in relying on these cases, what other cases is he putting before you in relation to the dispensing principle?

The only other point I think I want to make before I come to Sewel is the point I made or foreshadowed earlier, which is, we respectfully submit, that it is not a correct approach to say: well, all we need to do is look at section 2, and if that falls away, so does everything else. I made that point but I just want to, as it were, emphasise it.
