Retained EU Law Bill
My response to the emails regarding the revocation and reform of EU Laws into British Law
Thank you for your email about the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill.
This Bill will end the special legal status of retained EU law and make it easier to amend, repeal or replace.
The Government has been clear that this Bill is not about reducing already-existing protections but rather providing a more efficient and effective route for consolidating, amending and removing unnecessary retained EU law.
Constituents will know that I have been unequivocal in my support for environmental protection in legislation.
I trust the Government’s commitment to protecting the environment with this Bill as do I trust their commitment to workers’ rights.
I will watch this Bill’s progression closely.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
I wish you well.
Sir Peter Bottomley MP
