Michael Gove, the Justice Secretary and Lord Chancellor, has said that the renegotiations undertaken by David Cameron, the Prime Minister, may not be legally enforceable under European courts.
Gove said in an interview with the BBC:
“There are two things which are true. The first thing is the prime minister is right: this is an agreement between 28 nations and all have agreed that they will abide by it. But the whole point about the European Court of Justice is that it stands above the nation states”.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister disagreed and said that the renegotiations were “an irreversible international law decision”.
