The Constitutional Law Association has published an article by FTB's Charles Streeten arguing that a notification of the intention to withdraw from the EU under Article 50 TFEU can be revoked unilaterally.
Since the referendum result late last month, Article 50 has come under significant legal scrutiny. The piece, published today, sets out the basis under European and international law for interpreting Article 50 as allowing a party to revoke a notification.
Whether or not a notification can be revoked will have important consequences in the context of any future negotiations between the UK and the EU and is relevant to the debate about whether it is Parliament of the Prime Minister who has the power to issue a notification of the intention to withdraw from the EU.
