Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement
The White Paper on Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement between the United Kingdom and the European Union sets out how the Government will implement the final Withdrawal Agreement we reach with the EU in UK law.
The White Paper confirms that the EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill will:
- be the primary means by which the rights of EU citizens will be protected in UK law
- legislate for the time-limited implementation period
- create a financial authority to manage the specific payments to be made under the financial settlement, with appropriate Parliamentary oversight
