Enact a Great Repeal Bill to convert EU law into UK law

We will enact a Great Repeal Bill. Our laws will be made in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast, and interpreted by judges across the United Kingdom, not in Luxembourg. The bill will convert EU law into UK law, allowing businesses and individuals to go about life knowing that the rules have not changed overnight.

Our Verdict

You might have noticed above that we included a fairly large chunk of text from the manifesto quote. That’s because it’s quite useful in explaining what the Great Repeal Bill aims to do: namely, convert EU laws into UK laws so that there is continuity in our “rules” from the moment we leave the EU.

Progress-wise this is clear-cut. The Great Repeal Bill was passed into law in June 2018, under the name of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018. So this policy is well and truly ‘done’.
