To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, how many in-flight files of EU legislation exist that effect the policy areas managed by his Department; and which in-flight files of EU legislation his Department intends to implement in UK law.

During the time-limited implementation period, EU law will continue to apply in the UK subject to the terms set out in the Withdrawal Agreement.

The MOJ currently has two in-flight files being managed within the department which may require implementation during any agreed Implementation Period. This is without prejudice to other live files currently in-flight in the EU over which the UK may seek a post-adoption opt-in.

The Official Journal of the European Union publishes upcoming EU legislation for implementation. This is publicly available online: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/oj/direct-access.html .
