The House of Lords Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee has published a report on the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. The report focuses on the Bill's provisions for secondary legislation and warns against giving Ministers “unfettered discretion” and “excessively wide legislative powers”. In particular, the Report criticises the scope of powers granted by clauses 7-9 and 17 of the Bill, which were discussed in our previous blog.
