Article summary

Public Law analysis: Under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EU(W)A 2018), before certain proposed statutory instruments (Brexit SIs) are formally laid in Parliament, they have to go through a preliminary sifting process to determine the appropriate level of parliamentary scrutiny. Committees in both Houses of Parliament are responsible for this process and are inviting submissions from individuals and organisations to assist in this work. Although Parliament is currently in summer recess, a number of these instruments have been laid for sifting which is due to commence when Parliament returns in September 2018. Updates on the process, timescales and details of the latest drafts are outlined here. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
