The Home Office does not hold information centrally on which statutory instruments relating to the responsibilities of the Home Office are derived wholly or in part from EU legislation.

For the purposes of exiting the EU, Government departments have been analysing the UK statute book and directly applicable EU law in their areas of responsibility to enable an assessment of the scale of the changes needed. This is likely to include the repeal, but also the amendment, of provisions in Acts but we are not in a position to give a sense of scale at this time.
