European Union (Withdrawal) Bill — New Clause 14 — Report on Interpretation of Retained EU law During Transitional Period — 14 Nov 2017 at 22:45
The majority of MPs voted not to require a report on how retained EU law will be interpreted during a transition period between the UK withdrawing from the EU and a withdrawal agreement being implemented.
MPs were considering the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled: Interpretation of retained EU law during transitional period and stated:
“Within one month of Royal Assent of this Act the Secretary of State shall lay a report before Parliament setting out how the interpretation of retained EU law provisions in section 6 shall operate in the event of a transitional period being agreed between the United Kingdom and the European Union ahead of the implementation of a withdrawal agreement.”
The rejected clause was accompanied by an explanatory notice stating:
- This new clause would ensure that Ministers must set out in detail how the provisions in Clause 6 would apply during a transitional period before the United Kingdom fully implements a withdrawal agreement.
