Case update 04 October 2018

Help us tell the people – it’s not too late to Remain.

Following our successful appeal, the Inner House of the Court of Session has referred to the Court of Justice of the European Union the question whether we can withdraw the terms of the Article 50 notice. You can read the terms of the reference here. And the Court of Justice has confirmed receipt.

Our director wrote in the Guardian about why the issue is critical. But in summary

  • If we can revoke the notification without permission we will retain the rebate and opt outs we presently enjoy. It can be, legally, like the decision to Brexit was just a bad dream.
  • It de-risks process. If we have to go cap in hand to the other 27 for permission we are at risk that a country that will benefit from transfers of financial services or manufacturing will block our path to Remain. Remaining should be a choice for the UK. We should have control.

We are expecting a decision before Christmas. We will provide dates for the hearing when we learn them.
