Email Alerts will be sent tomorrow to Subscribers to Cardinal Environment EHS Legislation Registers and Law Checklists.

The proposed changes are substantive: some 1,000 statutory instruments are expected, as well as up to 15 bills. The actions will :

(1) Repeal the European Communities Act

(2) Convert EU Law to UK Law (directly applicable EU law is not written out in UK Law because it didn’t need to be)

(3) Create powers to make statutory instruments to correct UK Law
