Several joined cases are to be heard in the High Court in London early next month arguing that the UK Government is not legally entitled to notify the UK’s intention to withdraw from the European Union under Article 50 TEU without the prior approval of the UK Parliament. Other cases, raising somewhat different arguments, are also due to be heard in Belfast. Last week one set of the London claimants (the “People’s Challenge Interested Parties” (PCIP)) published their skeleton argument, and the Government has now also been required to publish its grounds of resistance.
