The morning after the 2nd reading of the UK Government’s EU (Withdrawal) Bill, the Wales Governance Centre, along with the Hansard Society and the UK and EU project, co-hosted an event in central London where MPs, academics and experts discussed the complexities of the bill.
Here Daniel Denman, Legal Director at the UK Government’s Department for Exiting the European Union, provides insight on the drafting process and Sionaidh Douglas Scott, Co-Director at the Centre for Law and Society in a Global Context at Queen Mary University of London, gives a critical analysis of the Bill.
This recording was made at The EU (Withdrawal) Bill: Principles, Powers and Parliaments event, which brought together leading parliamentarians and legal and constitutional specialists from across the UK to discuss the critical issues raised by the Bill and its prospects in the UK’s parliaments and assemblies. The Conference was funded by the ESRC UK in a Changing Europe initiative and the full programme can be found here.
