Yesterday, the Government published the long-awaited Repeal Bill, formally named the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. The bill aims to transpose EU law into UK law, wherever practically possible. The immediate relationship businesses have with laws and regulations in the UK will change post-Brexit. The Repeal Bill is the first step.
As ever, the devil is in the detail; there are provisions in the bill that businesses will want to consider. So-called Henry VIII rules will allow the Government to enact regulations with less scrutiny than they would normally. These provisions are likely to be highly contentious, so watch this space.
