Lords to hear evidence on the legality of EU sanctions listings

As we announced here, next Tuesday (11 October 2016) the House of Lords EU Justice Sub-Committee will hear evidence on the legality of the EU sanctions listings process.

The committee has now published details, here.  It will hear from Paul Williams, Andrew Murdoch and Matthew Findlay of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, Maya Lester QC (of this blog) and Michael Bishop (Senior Legal Adviser in the EU Council Legal Service).

Topics for discussion are: the legality of the Council’s process for listing and re-listing sanctions, what value Parliamentary scrutiny can add to this process, and the implications of Brexit for future UK alignment with EU sanctions. Please send any views to maya.lester@brickcourt.co.uk
