Following the publication of the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill 2017 (the “Withdrawal Bill”), the Ministry of Justice invited the FMLC to provide feedback. To this end, a letter was sent to the Ministry of Justice drawing attention to issues of legal uncertainty stemming from Clause 3 of the Withdrawal Bill, which concerns the incorporation of direct E.U. legislation. The letter concludes by stating that the FMLC will contribute further research and analysis when the statutory instruments made pursuant to powers set out in the Withdrawal Bill are published.
