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

My Lord, that is why I started precisely where I did, because in my submission, once you recognise that there are different sources of power and that Parliament can intervene in that way, and we are not making the submission that has been attributed to us, that is precisely why I set up the question in the manner that I did, making it in effect a question about what Parliament has decided to do.

Now, if Parliament has decided, and I am going to take you back to some of the legislation, to set up an intricate regime in a variety of different ways, it might be thought to be tolerably surprising if the answer to this appeal is the one that my Lord poses, which is in effect the a priori point that has been taken against me again this morning, in the light of the interventions that my Lord has made in the course of this appeal.
