On the eve of the debate in the House of Lords on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill (the Bill), the House of Lords Constitution Committee (the Committee) has published a report (the Report) describing the Bill as "constitutionally unacceptable", "conceptually flawed" and concluding that, in its current form, it "risks fundamentally undermining legal certainty". The Report calls for a major re-write of the Bill, despite it having already been voted through the House of Commons earlier in January.
