Joint written evidence submission to the House of Commons Public Bill Committee on the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill 2022

Executive Summary

The Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill pursues the legislative objective of ensuring that the UK statute book reflects the legal and political reality of withdrawal from the European Union.

In their joint written evidence submission to the House of Commons Public Bill Committee on the REUL (R&R), the Bingham Centre's Maurice Wohl Research Leader in European Rule of Law Dr Oliver Garner and Barrister Dr Julian Ghosh KC of One Essex Court Chambers outline how key parts of the Bill go further than what is necessary to attain these aims.

Their joint research on the Bill identifies at least four aspects of the Bill that potentially hamper the functioning of the UK statute book and demonstrate how these clauses would jeopardise Rule of Law principles if they came into force.
