The House of Commons Library has published a briefing paper on Legislating for Brexit: the Great Repeal Bill. The Great Repeal Bill will repeal the European Communities Act 1972 as of the UK formally leaving the EU, upon which EU law will no longer have direct effect in the UK. The briefing paper considers issues likely to be raised by the Bill, including: (i) the extent to which directly applicable EU legislation, such as EU Regulations, will be transposed into UK law; (ii) the scope and mechanics of any delegated powers enabling ministers to give effect to the outcome of withdrawal negotiations; and (iii) the extent to which transposing all directly applicable EU law would require consent from the devolved administrations. The government has also stated that the Bill will include delegated powers to enable the government to adapt any EU-related legislation as appropriate.
