Publication of 'Great Repeal Bill' and delegated powers report

3 March 2017

The Constitution Committee publishes a report on the 'Great Repeal Bill' and delegated powers on Tuesday 7 March.


The report looks at the challenges the Government and Parliament faces in repealing the European Communities Act 1972, and in converting existing EU law into UK law. The Committee considers the extent to which it might be necessary to grant the Government wide-ranging delegated powers to complete this task, as well as considering how Parliament may maintain appropriate control over the exercise of those powers.

The report is expected to be published on Tuesday 7 March.
