Brexit Bill On Way

As I anticipated it has not taken long for the consequences of the Supreme Court judgment announced on Tuesday to start to be noticed. On the Order Paper today is the following under the heading of Presentation of Bill:

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal)

Secretary David Davis

Bill to confer power on the Prime Minister to notify, under Article 50(2) of the Treaty on European Union, the United Kingdom’s intention to withdraw from the EU.

This is what is referred to as the First Reading and the Leader will announce the next stages of the Parliamentary proceedings for this Bill at the Business Statement today.
