Rishi Sunak “doubles down” on his intentions to burn 4,000 pieces of despised European law.
According to the Prime Minister, getting rid of around 4,000 pieces of law coming from Brussels would boost the UK’s economic recovery and “improve people’s everyday lives.”
He also committed to completing the monumental work by the end of the year, despite the opposition of rebel Labour and Tories. The effort has the “potential to drive growth and improve people’s everyday lives,” the prime minister told his cabinet.
Michael Fabricant, a fellow Conservative lawmaker, said: “This is what Brexit was all about.”
Additionally, by December 31, 2023, almost all of the remaining residual EU legislation may be either repealed or incorporated into UK domestic law.
Internal estimates indicate that thousands of officials will need to be diverted in order to study legislation full-time due to the size of the assignment, which is leading Whitehall to consider the deadline as unrealistic.
Some lawmakers worry that the legislation would be automatically repealed at the end of the year without any debate or review in the legislature.
Former justice and Brexit secretaries Sir Robert Buckland and David Davis have joined a cross-party effort to compel the government to specify which laws it intends to maintain, alter, or repeal.
