The European Union (Withdrawal) Bill will retain EU law as it applies in the UK on exit day, with relevant adjustments to ensure the statute book functions appropriately outside the EU. This will give legal certainty to businesses, contracting authorities, and employees.

Once we leave the EU, we will make our own laws. Ministry of Defence officials are working closely with colleagues across Government to ensure that the Government's EU exit legislative programme is designed to cater for the full range of negotiated and non-negotiated outcomes.
