The Great Repeal Bill

The UK Government has published a white paper on the Great Repeal Bill –the legislation that will end EU law in the UK.  In it the Government set some of the detail of how they will go about this, including converting EU law into British law wherever possible and where there are rights in the EU treaties that can be relied on directly in court by an individual, the Great Repeal Bill will incorporate those rights into UK law.
