The Constitution Society's Inaugural Public Lecture
A big thank you to all that attended our Inaugural Public Lecture.
Above: our Constitution Society President Sir Malcolm Jack with the Rt Hon Dominic Grieve QC MP after giving our highly popular Inaugural Public Lecture on "A backbencher's view of Brexit".
Dominic Grieve gave a great overview of the historical, constitutional backdrop to Brexit, before commenting on his role in the House of Commons' examination of the EU (Withdrawal Bill) - including defeating the government on Clause 9 of the bill. Dominic speculated on the passage of the Bill through the House of Lords and beyond, and how best the country might go about ameliorating this "historic mistake".
