Petition Summary

The petitioner states that the United Kingdom's relationship with the EU is set out in its European Communities Act 1972 and can be repealed only by another Act of Parliament. He stresses that the EU should refuse to recognise an Article 50 withdrawal declaration or engage in any negotiation in connection with it until and unless this constitutional requirement is met.
