Professor Biondi cited in House of Lords Brexit report
Professor Andrea Biondi has been extensively cited in the House of Lords report on the future of competition law and EU Law.
Professor Andrea Biondi has been extensively cited in the House of Lords select committee report on the future of competition law and EU Law. The committee has been exploring the implications of Brexit for the UK’s future.
The House of Lords report explores the implications of Brexit for competition law and state aid control in the UK, in particular as no domestic framework exists in the UK for State aid, as EU law is applied directly and enforced by the Commission many and difficult regulatory and policy choices are required. Professor Andrea Biondi has submitted evidence often quoted in the report to explain what possible options could be available. He argued that whatever the outcome of the Brexit process, the UK would need a domestic authority to ‘provide reassurance that public spending will be transparent, fair and not distort the market.’
Andrea Biondi is Professor of European Union Law and the Director of the Centre for European Law at King’s. The Centre is at the forefront of EU law scholarship and is closely engaged in the debate concerning the legal implications of Brexit.
