In episode 6 of the Essex Court Chambers ‘10 in 10’ podcast, Stephen Houseman QC talks to Hugh Mercer QC and Professor Dan Sarooshi QC about the two Gina Miller appeals to the Supreme Court in 2017 and 2019 and the effect of the decisions on the Brexit process.
The first appeal, heard in 2017, considered the decision about whether it was Parliament or the Government that under UK Constitution had the authority to give notice to the EU that the UK was leaving the EU. The second Appeal heard in 2019 was in relation to the Prime Ministers advice to the Queen to prorogue parliament after it was confirmed that the UK was to leave the EU.
Dan Sarooshi QC appeared on behalf of Miller in ‘Miller I.’
