U.K. lawmakers are warning Theresa May’s government not to use Brexit as an excuse to amend laws without proper scrutiny.
May has promised a “Great Repeal Bill,” which despite its name will have the effect of writing all European Union rules into British law. The aim is to ensure continuity for businesses and the bill is expected to include powers allowing the government to modify the rules.
But the House of Lords Constitution Committee, in a report published Tuesday, insisted that Parliament is fully consulted. Ministers should be required to sign a declaration that any modifications do the bare minimum necessary to translate the EU rule, it said.
