The Great Repeal Bill published

The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, also known as the “Great Repeal Bill” has been published. The Bill sets out the power to repeal the European Communities Act 1972 and make other provisions in connection with the withdrawal of the UK from the EU.

The European Communities Act 1972 will be repealed on the day the UK exits from the EU according to the Bill. Any EU-derived legislation which has effect in the UK domestic law immediately before the day the UK leaves the EU will continue to have effect in domestic law on and after the exit day.

Any rights, powers, liabilities, obligations, restrictions, remedies and procedures which are recognised and available in UK domestic law under the European Communities Act 1972 before exit day will also continue to be recognised and available in domestic law after the UK leaves the EU.

After exit day the supremacy of EU law will no longer apply to legislation passed from that point onwards.

The Bill is split into the following sections:

  • Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972;
  • Retention of existing EU law;
  • Main powers in connection with withdrawal;
  • Devolution;
  • Financial and other matters;
  • General and final provision.

The Prime Minister Theresa May has described the Bill as an “essential step” on the way to leaving the EU and a report from the House of Commons has described the Bill as likely to be “one of the largest legislative projects ever undertaken in the UK”.
