    Speaker's note: Given the provisions regarding referendum results being overturned, this amendment, if passed, will not enter into force until the next parliamentary term.

    VA156 – European Union Amendment
    Proposed by: TheDefiniteArticle (Lab)
    Seconded by: Quamquam123 (Lab), cranbrook_aspie (Lab), RayApparently (Lab), PetrosAC (Lib), joecphillips (Lib), Airmed (Lib), hazzer1998 (UKIP), Unown Uzer (UKIP)

    In the Guidance Document:

    Replace: "8) The Model House of Commons may not overturn a decision made in a referendum that has taken place within the last three parliamentary terms (including the current term)."

    With: "8) The Model House of Commons may not overturn a decision made in a referendum that has taken place within the last three parliamentary terms (including the current term), with the exception that TSR shall remain a member of the EU only if and insofar as the UK in real life does."


    NotesThis is to make the MHoC more accessible to new people - Brexit is a massive change, and it would only be confusing for newbies if we remained on TSR after leaving IRL. This does not prevent us from passing an Act to rejoin, but it does prevent EU law from affecting us constitutionally. Note that this only takes TSRland out of the EU once the Article 50 process is complete IRL.
