Brexit and Human Rights

The UK has notified its intention to withdraw from the European Union EU by invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty

Because parliament and the government have failed to agree a withdrawal deal with the EU, the current date when EU treaties are scheduled to cease to apply is 31 October 2019. That date could be earlier, if a deal is agreed and might be later if no agreement is reached by October..
