European Union (Withdrawal) Bill — Clause 6 — UK Courts and Tribunals — Regard for European Court and European Union Decisions — 14 Nov 2017 at 23:03
The majority of MPs voted not to require courts or tribunals to have regard to anything done on or after exit day by the European Court, another EU entity or the EU.
MPs were considering the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill.
The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment 137, page 3, line 34, leave out subsection (2) and insert—
- “(2) When interpreting retained EU law after exit day a court or tribunal shall pay due regard to any relevant decision of the European Court.”
had it not been rejected this amendment would have impacted Clause 6 of the Bill, subsection (2) of which stated:
- A court or tribunal need not have regard to anything done on or after exit day by the European Court, another EU entity or the EU but may do so if it considers it appropriate to do so.
