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

From paragraph 13 we have looked at the general constitutional position concerning the use of the historical prerogative to dispense with law, and separately from paragraph 17, whether it can be said that the treaty prerogative is in some way different or wider.

So the first part of the historical case from paragraph 13 sets out the authorities which show that the prerogative, any prerogative, cannot be used to dispense with or suspend the law. May I please ask you to cross out the words "the foreign relations" above paragraph 13 in that heading, which is an overenthusiastic autocorrect function, I am afraid.
