European Union (Withdrawal) Bill — Consequential, transitional, transitory and saving provision — 17 Jan 2018 at 18:59

This amendment amends the effect of paragraph 3 of Schedule 1 by permitting legal challenges on or after exit day based on the general principles of EU law where those challenges relate to anything which happened before exit day, are made within 3 months of exit day and are not for the disapplication or quashing of an Act of Parliament or the common law or anything related to them.
“or made on or after that day by virtue of this paragraph”.-(Mr Baker.)
“welcome and encourage contributions from those who approach the task in good faith and in a spirit of collaboration.”-[Official Report, 7 September 2017; Vol. 628, c. 343.]
“A court or tribunal…is not bound by any principles laid down, or any decisions made, on or after exit day by the European Court, and…cannot refer any matter to the European Court on or after exit day.”
“this House regrets the non-appearance of any Government amendments to Clause 11 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill despite the announcement by the Secretary of State for Scotland that the Government intended to table them for Report Stage and declines to give a Third Reading to the Bill because it is not fit for purpose as it undermines the fundamental principles of the Scotland Act 1998 by reserving to the UK Parliament powers that would otherwise be devolved to the Scottish Parliament on the UK leaving the European Union.”
“clause 11…is not fit for purpose”.-[Official Report, 4 December 2017; Vol. 632, c. 731.]

The House divided:

Ayes 295, Noes 322.
