    Lord Howell told peers in the House of Lords: “There has clearly been a transfer of power or competence, as the Prime Minister has pointed out, to an EU institution from national Governments.

    “What is the position under the European Union Act 2011, in particular under Section 4(1) - paragraphs (g), (h) and (i) - which I had the privilege of guiding through this House at the time?”

    I would love someone to take this to court and challenge the 2011 European Union Act
