Brexit ruling “only adds to uncertainty” in the UK food industry

November 4, 2016, EU Food Law

Brian Kelly is quoted in an EU Food Law article regarding the UK High Court ruling requiring its government to have Parliamentary approval before triggering Article 50. According to Kelly, the decision added uncertainty around Brexit, although it did also present a lobbying opportunity for the industry as well. 

“The immediate impact of the judgment is that, as of today, it is clear that the UK Government cannot invoke Article 50 without Parliamentary approval. This presents an opportunity for individual companies and the industry to engage with Members of Parliament to ensure that their views are heard before a vote takes place,” Kelly says. “However, this decision will likely be appealed in short order directly to the Supreme Court and we expect a final decision towards the end of this year or early next. So, for the food and beverage industry this just means continued uncertainty over the timing and terms of any withdrawal.”
