Is the EU Referendum "binding"? Watch our interview with Lord Norton of Louth

19 July 2016

How will the Brexit process work? Can the Prime Minister activate Article 50 without a parliamentary vote?

Speaking in a two part interview with DeHavilland, Lord Norton of Louth, Professor of Government at the University of Hull and Conservative peer, talks about the constitutional implications of Brexit.

In the first video, Lord Norton discusses whether the UK Government is bound by the referendum result, how the new Government are preparing for the process and if an "early" General Election could be held.

The second video sees Lord Norton outline the potential role of the UK Parliament in the process, whether devolved assemblies could block Brexit and whether the UK would really "take back control" by leaving the EU.
