The Government has undertaken extensive work to identify the primary legislation essential to deliver our exit from the EU in different scenarios. Five exit-related bills have been passed, six more are making their way through Parliament and we will need to pass the EU (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill to give effect to the Withdrawal Agreement in UK law.

We will introduce further exit legislation as necessary, both before and after exit day, to ensure that we have the right legal frameworks to implement our withdrawal from the European Union.
