Exiting the EU: Publication of Legal Advice ...

Following the Motion passed on 4 December in the House of Commons, the Government has published the Attorney General’s legal advice to Cabinet on the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland and made this available to Parliament. This is the full, final advice that the Attorney General provided to Cabinet on 14 November on the legal effect of the Withdrawal Agreement.

The Advocate General has given his opinion in Case C-621/18 Wightman: Article 50 TFEU notification of the intention to withdraw from the EU can be revoked unilaterally under certain conditions.

The ECJ has said that it will deliver its judgment on Monday (the day before the ‘meaningful’ vote in Parliament)

#Brexit: the ruling on the reversibility of #Article50 TEU (case C-621/18 Wightman) will be delivered on 10th December at 9 CET

Government statement yesterday and policy paper on protecting EU citizens rights in the UK and UK citizens rights in the EU if there is no deal.

Brexit secretary Stephen Barclay said in his statement-

‘In an unlikely no deal scenario the Government is committing to protect the rights of EU citizens and their family members resident in the UK by 29 March 2019, so that they can continue to work, study and access benefits and services on the same basis as now.

As there would be no agreed implementation period, EU citizens and their family members resident here by 29 March 2019 would have until 31 December 2020 to apply for a status under the EU Settlement Scheme. The process will be simple and streamlined.’

I’d love a bit of “simple and streamlined” and when I see it, it will be a first!

CJEU decision today Wightman Case C-621/18 rules that Britain can unilaterally revoke Article 50 and, in contrast to the Advocate General opinion, found that unilateral revocation was a sovereign right for any Member State to pursue without any conditions attached, beyond the decision to revoke needing to follow a ‘democratic process’.

Looking like tomorrow’s ‘meaningful vote’ may be off ... from Twitter:

- Cabinet ministers put on standby for emergency conference call with PM in next half hour
- Cabinet conference call at 11.30
- Two cabinet sources tell me vote being pulled - not, repeat not, yet officially confirmed
- Breaking: The Prime Minister will be making an oral statement today at 330pm titled “Exiting the European Union”.
- Leadsom statement on Commons business expected to follow PM statement this afternoon, which implies they are indeed pulling the vote

Home Office have emailed about the settled status scheme.

This is the latest information on the EU Settlement Scheme for EU citizens in the UK. You are receiving this because you have requested email updates from the UK government.

The Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union today set out information for EU citizens and their family members in the UK in the event of a no deal exit from the EU.

The UK Government:

•Confirms that if there is no deal, the EU Settlement Scheme will continue to be implemented, enabling EU citizens and their family members living in the UK by 29 March 2019 to secure their status and continue to be able to work, study, and access benefits and services in the UK on the same basis after we exit the EU as they do now. The scheme will be fully open by 30 March 2019 as planned.

•Confirms that the Home Office will continue to look to grant status rather than refuse and in line with the UK commitment to be more generous in certain respects than the draft Withdrawal Agreement, a person will not be refused status under the EU Settlement Scheme because, for example, they are not economically active or they do not hold comprehensive sickness insurance.

There would be some changes to the EU Settlement Scheme if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, and further details are set out in the policy document.  In particular, as there will be no agreed implementation period, the application deadline will be brought forward to 31 December 2020.

You do not need to do anything for now. The EU Settlement Scheme will be fully open by 30 March 2019.
Further information about the scheme can be found on GOV.UK.

Given the complete and utter shambles on-going in Westminster, whether this information has any real meaning currently is completely beyond my simple mind…..
