dbo:abstract
  • The European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Act 2017 (c. 9) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom to empower the Prime Minister to give to the Council of the European Union the formal notice – required by Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union – for starting negotiations for the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union. The Act was passed following the result of the 2016 United Kingdom European Union membership referendum held on 23 June in which 51.9% of voters voted to leave the European Union and also directly follows the decision of the (United Kingdom) Supreme Court on 24 January 2017 in the judicial review case of R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union and was the first major piece of Brexit legislation to be passed by the UK Parliament to give effect to the result of the referendum and was also the most significant piece of legislation to be passed by the 2015–17 Parliament before its dissolution following the surprise calling of the 2017 United Kingdom general election shortly after Article 50 had been invoked following the passing of the Act.
