We will [...] end the role of the European Court of Justice.

Conservative Party Manifesto 2019, p.5

Our verdict

  • European Union (EU) member states are subject to the authority of the European Court of Justice (ECJ), and as part of its promise to ‘get Brexit done’, this policy commits the UK government to ending that relationship.
  •  Under the trade and cooperation deal agreed in December 2020 between the EU and the UK government there is no role for the ECJ.
  • As of 11pm on 31 December 2020, the UK has left the EU and is no longer under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.  This policy is ‘done’

There's always room for debate
