UK rules in favour of EU citizens rights – Hayes
Reacting to the UK Supreme Court ruling that the UK Parliament must approve the triggering of Article 50, Brian Hayes MEP said:
“Today’s UK Supreme Court ruling is a heavy defeat for the British government. It confirms the right of Parliament to control the British side of the Brexit process.
“Brexit will be an extremely complex legal process both on the British side and on the EU side. There is now no guarantee that Article 50 can be triggered by the end of March given the necessity for legislation to be enacted.
“Neither the European Parliament nor the British parliament can be taken for granted throughout this entire process. Both Parliaments will have to ultimately agree to a final deal on Brexit. There must now be regular scrutiny by the European Parliament of this entire process.
“Today’s decision in London is a victory for parliamentary democracy.”
