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

Indeed and I am conscious of time, so I am just going to sum up in this way, my Lords, that it is not necessary in my submission for the courts to answer the second devolution issue that has been brought from Northern Ireland. In my respectful submission the court may be entitled to hold that what the Lord Advocate describes as the legislative consent convention is not a constitutional requirement in terms of Article 50.

Unless I can assist the court further, I would rest my submissions there. I am obliged, my Lords.
