At some point in the next few weeks, Parliament will be asked to vote on whether the terms agreed between the UK and the EU for UK withdrawal should be approved.  In parallel to the political debate, what is the correct procedure to be adopted and what are the specific questions to be debated are of critical importance and are the subject matter of a recent report from Parliament’s Procedure committee, published on 16 November 2018.  Rhodri Thompson QC submitted written evidence to the Committee on these questions that has been published here.
