DRAFT STATUTORY INSTRUMENTS AMENDING “RETAINED EU LAW” STARTING TO APPEAR

On 20th April, Herbert Smith Freehills published an article saying that the UK Government is beginning to publish in draft Brexit Statutory Instruments (SI) planned to be passed under the Brexit Bill once enacted.  These are designed to adapt EU law which will be retained in UK law after Brexit to operate in the UK once it is no longer a member of the EU.  This move to publish legislation in draft in effect means that there is more opportunity than originally expected to comment on drafts published before they become law, in the event that they raise concerns.
