Lost in transition

1 November 2017

As the negotiations continue, a consensus is emerging that more time is needed. The negotiations are progressing slowly, a future trade agreement is yet to be discussed, and the Withdrawal Bill has been delayed.

Calls are growing for "transitional arrangements" to avoid a cliff edge and to provide certainty for business. But beyond knowing that one is desirable, does anyone know what a transition would or even could look like in practice? What are the options, how feasible are they legally and how difficult could they be to negotiate politically and in the time available?

Another issue that remains out there is the possible revocation of the UK's Article 50 notice. It would certainly be a challenge to get this done politically, but is it even legally possible?

The Repeal Bill: Understanding the small print

14 July 2017

Yesterday, the Government published the long-awaited Repeal Bill, formally named the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill. The bill aims to transpose EU law into UK law, wherever practically possible. The immediate relationship businesses have with laws and regulations in the UK will change post-Brexit. The Repeal Bill is the first step.

As ever, the devil is in the detail; there are provisions in the bill that businesses will want to consider. So-called Henry VIII rules will allow the Government to enact regulations with less scrutiny than they would normally. These provisions are likely to be highly contentious, so watch this space.

The Queen's Speech has set out the Government's intended legislative programme for the next two years – and its focus is Brexit.  The (no-longer Great) Repeal Bill is confirmed, providing for continuity at the point of Brexit, by converting existing EU law into domestic law by default and as far as possible.
