The Telegraph has backed Bill Cash's amendment to the EU Bill which is designed to reassert the sovereignty of the United Kingdom Parliament.
This issue, says the Telegraph, "goes to the heart of where power lies – and it may today trigger the biggest Tory backbench revolt since the general election when MPs debate the committee stage of the European Union Bill. This measure is supposed to fulfil the promise made by David Cameron in opposition to prevent parliamentary sovereignty being further undermined by decisions taken in Brussels, Strasbourg or the UK courts. Critics, led by the redoubtable Bill Cash, say the measure does not achieve what was promised. They have tabled amendments which expressly reaffirm the sovereignty of Parliament and preclude the courts from invoking any common law principle to unravel a decision of Parliament."
