Please urge the Lords to support Lord Pearson's Implications of Withdrawal Bill. After all, more than half of the British people want to withdraw. Surely we should know what the consequences would be.
The implications of our membership of the European Union have never been discussed in either of our Houses of Parliament. Neither have the implications of our withdrawal from the European Union. This will change on Friday, the 8th of June, when Lord Pearson's bill, lmplications of Withdrawal, receives its second reading in the House of Lords. Lord Pearson is one of the UK Independence Party's two peers in the House of Lords and a longstanding Eurorealist. His bill would require the Chancellor of the Exchequer to appoint a committee to examine the consequences of withdrawing from the European Union –
A Bill To Establish a Committee of Inquiry into the implications of a withdrawal by the United Kingdom from the European Union.
Be it enacted by the Queen’s most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and
consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present
Parliament assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—
Committee of Inquiry into withdrawal from the European Union
The Chancellor of the Exchequer shall appoint a Committee of Inquiry to
report to him on the implications of a withdrawal by the United Kingdom from
the European Union.
In subsection (1) “implications” mean implications for—
the economy of the United Kingdom,
the national security and defence of the United Kingdom,
the constitution of the United Kingdom, and
the impact costs and other public expenditure in the United Kingdom
as a result of its membership of the European Union.
This is urgent.
