May Publishes 'Great Repeal Bill' To Assimilate EU Law After Brexit

Share

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has previously warned ministers they face "hell" as they try to get the bill through the Houses of Commons and Lords.

The Government has published the central plank of its Brexit strategy, but critics have rounded on the Repeal Bill, accusing Theresa May of a "naked power-grab".

But the first battle lines over the key piece of legislation have already been drawn.

Brexit Minister David Davis said the bill will ensure the United Kingdom will have a "fully functioning legal system" on leaving the EU.

Under the terms of the legislation, European Union law will cease to have supremacy in the United Kingdom on Brexit day.

Mr Davis said it would allow the United Kingdom to leave the European Union with "maximum certainty, continuity and control".

"Nobody voted for Brexit to make life harder for working people".

"It is one of the most significant pieces of legislation that has ever passed through Parliament and is a major milestone in the process of our withdrawal from the European Union", he remarked, according to the BBC.

And, the government has promised to produce a "comprehensive" 25 Year Environment Plan, which will set out how it plans to "improve our environment as we leave the European Union and take control of our environmental legislation again".

"The eyes of the country are on us and I will work with anyone to achieve this goal and shape a new future for our country".

However, in a joint statement, Nicola Sturgeon and Carwyn Jones called the bill an "attack on the founding principles of devolution" and threatened to vote against a consent motion which is expected to go before the Scottish Parliament and Welsh Assembly early next year. "If you found the Article 50 Bill hard, you should be under no illusion, this will be hell", said Mr Farron.

"Labour wants to work with other countries to build a different Europe, one which promotes human rights and environmental protections, celebrates the positive and complementary contributions of European nations, and where trade is fair and sustainable". However, Mr Davis has previously stressed this is not the aim, saying: "To those who are trying to frighten British workers, saying, "When we leave, employment rights will be eroded", I say firmly and unequivocally, "no they won't'".
