Prorogation of Parliament
In a unanimous judgment, the Supreme Court concluded that the question of the lawfulness of the Prime Minister’s advice to Her Majesty the Queen to prorogue Parliament was justiciable, and in this case the decision to advise the Queen prorogue Parliament was unlawful as it had the effect of frustrating/preventing Parliament’s ability to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification. On this basis the prorogation was void and of no effect. Parliament has therefore not been prorogued. Nick Wrightson, senior associate in the Public Law team at Kingsley Napley, and Kieran Laird, partner and head of constitutional affairs in the Gowling WLG Brexit Unit give their analysis of the Supreme Court’s decision, highlighting key legal and constitutional implications.

‘Get Ready for Brexit’ campaign
The government has launched a public information campaign to prepare the public and business owners for Brexit. The campaign aims to set out to the public and business owners what they need to do in order to be prepared when the UK leaves the EU on 31 October 2019. UK citizens intending to travel to EU countries, exporters to the EU and groups requiring particular information, such as the legal sector, are specifically targeted by the campaign.
