Impact of the Repeal Bill

Headline Date 06-09-2017

The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, also known as the Repeal Bill, was introduced to Parliament on Thursday 13 July 2017. It represents a significant milestone in our country’s journey towards leaving the EU and is designed to provide as much certainty and continuity as possible for businesses, workers and consumers, regardless of the outcome of the negotiations.

The Bill will repeal the European Communities Act 1972 and convert EU law (as it applies in the UK) into domestic law on the day we leave the EU. This means that, as far as possible, the same rules and laws will apply immediately before and immediately after our exit, ensuring a smooth transition.

The Bill will establish a stable legal framework for our withdrawal from the EU, and provide the basis for our future relationship with the EU. It will not make substantive changes to policy or establish new legal frameworks in the UK, beyond those which are necessary to ensure the law functions properly.
