    11/12/2019 Duração: 46min

    We don’t normally include event recordings on the Golau podcast feed (instead you can find a number of interesting speakers and public lectures on the Cardiff University podcast). However, this talk from the 2019 Wales Governance Centre Annual Lecture, delivered by Philip Rycroft (the former Permanent Secretary at the UK Government’s Department for Exiting the EU) is… well… something else. The audience in Cardiff Bay’s Pierhead found it interesting and provocative and we think you will too.

    One the day after the UK Government’s EU (Withdrawal) Bill had its second reading in the UK Parliament the Wales Governance Centre co-hosted an event about the bill in central London. Among the speakers were MPs, academics and legal experts. One of the event’s highlights was a talk delivered by Daniel Denman, Director of Legal Advisors in DExEU - The Department for Exiting the EU. He shared a fascinating insight into how the bill was drafted and why the widely-criticised Henry VIII powers were framed so broadly. In this episode of Golau we’ve reproduced his opening remarks in full to shed some light on the thinking behind the Bill.
