Government departments have been analysing the UK statute book and directly applicable EU law in their areas of responsibility to enable an assessment of the scale of the changes needed. This is likely to include the repeal, but also the amendment, of provisions in Acts but we are not in a position to give a sense of scale at this time.

In the Government White Paper on the Repeal Bill ‘Legislating for the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union’, published on 30 March 2017, we estimated around 800 - 1,000 EU-exit related Statutory Instruments will be required.
