Belfast anti no-deal case to conclude on Tuesday

The hearing was told on Monday that courts should not be asked to intervene in Brexit talks.

“This is high policy and the conduct of international affairs,” he said.

Northern Ireland’s Attorney General John Larkin QC also made submissions to judge Lord Justice Bernard McCloskey on what was the second day of the hearing, insisting process agreements in the country were not dependent on the UK remaining in the EU.
