On 30 March 2017 the UK Government published its White Paper on the Great Repeal Bill: Legislating for the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the European Union.

Today we made a submission to the UK Government in response to the White Paper which is available here.

The purpose of this submission is to offer the UK Government some thoughts on issues discussed in the White Paper and on some matters not raised in the White Paper which we believe it will be necessary to address by legislation.  We hope that this submission will be helpful to Government in formulating the Bill and other legislation being passed in order to prepare the UK for leaving the EU.

Our briefing note on the White Paper, published on the 5th April 2017, is available here.
