Jonathan Djanogly questions Government on Article 50
24th January 2017
Jonathan Djanogly asks the Government if triggering article 50 will be sufficient to release us from other related treaties, such as membership of the European economic area.
Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con)
Will triggering article 50 be adequate to release us from other related treaty obligations under the 1972 Act, such as our membership of the European economic area?
That is a debatable matter of law. I think that that is the accurate answer. Subsequent matters may arise after the triggering of article 50, but if so, we will come back to the House.
