Draft Freedom of Establishment and Free Movement of Services (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 — 23 Oct 2019 at 19:45
The majority of MPs voted to remove rights for European Union, Swiss and Turkish nationals to pursue activities as self-employed persons, to own and manage companies, and to provide services in the United Kingdom, on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That the draft Freedom of Establishment and Free Movement of Services (EU Exit) Regulations 2019, which were laid before this House on 11 July 2019, in the last Session of Parliament, be approved.
The explanatory memorandum identifies just one practical impact of the regulations, saying they will make using otherwise legitimate satellite decoder cards from the EU to dishonestly receive a programme with the intent of avoiding a charge an offence.
The explanatory memorandum states:
- It is anticipated that disapplication of these rights will have limited direct or practical impact ...
- This is because UK legislation should be in accordance with EU law at exit day, including these rights.
However the purpose of the regulations is given as being to: "address deficiencies in retained European Union (EU) law" so to deviate from the default position.
