The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill will convert all directly applicable European Union financial services legislation into British law. The powers under that Bill will be used to transfer functions currently undertaken by EU institutions to an appropriate UK body.
The future of our relationship with the European Supervisory Authorities is subject to the outcome of the withdrawal negotiations. The UK and the EU will start from the unique position of regulatory alignment. We will look to create a new framework that allows for continued trust in one another’s institutions and a close partnership.
