As we have always said, we will introduce the Bill as soon as possible once the Withdrawal Agreement has been approved by Parliament.

It would be presumptive to introduce or publish the legislation implementing the Withdrawal Agreement before Parliament has approved the terms of the final deal.

The Government is committed to doing everything it can to ensure that Parliament has the opportunity to scrutinise the Bill in the time available.
