Attempt to replace the Crown with the EU ?

Slice by slice…

On 14.05.2013 a Bill was Laid before the House of Lords by the Labour Peer Lord Berkeley –

Rights of the Sovereign and the Duchy of Cornwall Bill [HL] 2013-14

A Bill to amend the Sovereign Grant Act 2011; to amend the succession to the title of the Duke of Cornwall; to redistribute the Duchy of Cornwall estate; and to remove the requirement for a Parliament to obtain the Queen’s or Prince’s consent to consideration of Bills passing through Parliament.

It is suspected that this Bill was specifically designed to enable EU law to be passed without the need for Royal Assent among other things.
Was this an attempt to replace the Crown with the EU?

Luckily for us, it ran out of time, but it did get to the Second reading – the general debate on all aspects of the Bill – took place on 8 November 2013.

Committee stage – line by line examination of the Bill – is yet to be scheduled.

The 2013-14 session of parliament has prorogued and this Bill will make no further progress.

But… it doesn’t mean that the planned moves to remove the legal requirement for a Royal check and balance have gone away…

The Bill as Laid before Parliament.
