Retained EU Law: Where next?

Inquiry

This inquiry will look into the future of retained EU law in the context of the reviews announced by the Government.

Retained EU law is a new and unique concept in our domestic law, inconsistent with any previous constitutional arrangement. It was created in consequence of our leaving the European Union by the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 and it was a stopgap method.

In September 2021, the Government  announced two reviews into retained EU law: one on substance and one on status. What happens to retained EU law is a vital and fundamental part of the re-shaping of law and regulation post-EU exit.
