Some retained EU law in the scope of the sunset is required to continue to operate UKG’s international obligations, including the Trade and Co-operation Agreement, the Withdrawal Agreement, and the Northern Ireland Protocol.

The Government will take the necessary action to safeguard the substance of any retained EU law and legal effects required to operate international obligations within domestic law.

The primary objectives of the Bill are to: end the special status of retained EU law on the UK statute book; and enable the Government to more easily amend, revoke and replace retained EU law.
