Brexit:Written question - HL3138

Asked by Lord Hollick
Asked on: 09 November 2016
Department for Exiting the European Union
To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether, prior to the proceedings in the High Court, they received legal advice on the question of whether notification under Article 50 can be revoked after Article 50 has been invoked; and, if so, whether they will publish that advice.
Answered on: 21 November 2016

A clear majority of the UK electorate voted to leave the EU and we will respect the will of the people. As Government lawyers made clear in the High Court, the Government's position is that once given, our notification will not be withdrawn.

Our efforts will be focused on getting the best deal possible for the UK in the negotiations with the EU.
