UK can unilaterally revoke art 50 notice and remain in the EU


Re: Wightman & Ors v Secretary of State for Exiting the EU (C-621/18)

The UK is free to revoke unilaterally the notification under TEU, art 50 of its intention to withdraw from the EU. Such a revocation, decided in accordance with its own national constitutional requirements, would have the effect that the UK remains in the EU under terms that are unchanged as regards its status as a Member State.

Aidan O’Neill QC was involved in this case.
