The House of Lords EU Justice Sub-Committee will begin a short inquiry into the consequences of Brexit on Tuesday 13 September 2016.
Taking evidence from leading academics, the Committee will explore a number of key issues including:
- whether or not the rights already exercised under EU law by UK nationals will be legally enforceable as ‘acquired’ and, therefore, still enforceable once the UK leaves the EU;
- the potential content and operation of any withdrawal agreement negotiated between the UK and the EU for safeguarding EU rights; and
- the utility of other instruments of international law, such as the ECHR, as a means for protecting EU law based rights post-Brexit.
The inquiry will form part of the most extensive and thorough parliamentary scrutiny of Brexit.
