IfG report shows absurdity of Tory red line on EU Court of Justice

The UK rarely ends up in the EU Court of Justice, and when it does it wins its cases more often than most EU countries, a new report by the Institute for Government has found today.

Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake commented:

“This report highlights the absurdity of the Conservatives’ red line on the EU Court of Justice.

“In spite of the Tory party’s ideological obsessions, the Court has actually served Britain’s interests well over the years.

“The few cases the UK government has lost have mostly been for failing to uphold environmental protections.

“This should be a wake-up call for those Cabinet Ministers who want to rupture all ties with the EU Court no matter the cost for people’s rights, our economy and environment.”
