answer text <p>Retained EU Law, as introduced into UK law through the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (EUWA), is subject to complex glosses associated with EU legal principles, which confer a special status on retained EU law. This includes the principle of supremacy, which continues to apply in domestic law, and means some retained EU law takes priority over ordinary domestic law, including Acts of Parliament, in the event of conflict. This is no longer appropriate given we have left the EU.</p> more like this

answer text <p>It is too early to state the volume of legislation needed to amend retained EU law as the number of SIs required will depend on a range of factors. All SIs will become publicly available once laid before Parliament, in the usual way.</p><p>The Retained EU Law Dashboard shows where retained EU law sits across departments, policy areas and sectors. It will be updated quarterly to document the government's progress of amending, repealing or replacing retained EU law that is not right for the UK.</p><p>The purpose of Common Frameworks is to manage divergence, and whilst the sunset date within the Bill may encourage a quicker pace of reform, there is nothing unique to REUL reform that places it beyond the ability of Common Frameworks to handle in the areas they cover. As such, no specific scenario planning is required. I refer the noble Baroness to the answer I gave her today to HL5580 and HL5581: the Review and Amendment mechanism within Frameworks is designed to allow a Framework to be updated should a relevant change, such a reform of a significant piece of retained EU law that in the scope of the framework, require it.</p>

question text To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they will take if any relevant Retained EU Law that underpins the Common Frameworks programme is revoked; and what changes they will make to the dispute resolution process to ensure that it can be utilised to deal with issues arising from the Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill. more like this

answer text <p>Each Common Framework contains a review and amendment mechanism. This ensures the Framework can adapt to changing policy and governance environments in the future and provides for both periodic review and an exceptional review triggered by a significant issue. A significant issue is an issue that fundamentally impacts the operation or scope of the Framework. In many cases, reform of the retained EU law which a Common Framework covers will comprise this. Where retained EU law covered by a Framework is revoked, the parties to the Framework would be able to use this mechanism to review the Framework and make the required amendments.</p><p>Whilst there are minor differences between the dispute avoidance and resolution mechanisms set out within different Common Frameworks they all follow broadly the same structure and process, and can escalate into intergovernmental relations level mechanisms where necessary. The dispute avoidance and resolution mechanism in Frameworks are designed to deal with policy and governance disputes arising under the Framework. This is a broad category and as a result disputes about reform of retained EU laws would already fall within scope without change required.</p><p>Retained EU law itself forms a key part of the scope of individual Common Frameworks and retained EU law reform could necessitate changes to a Framework. This would include any changes to working groups.</p><p>For Common Frameworks that are not fully implemented, the amended provisional Common Framework will be published on the completion of legislature scrutiny and sign-off by relevant ministers. As this includes NI ministers this will take place when the NI Executive is restored.</p><p>For Common Frameworks that are fully implemented, the amended Framework would be published on GOV.UK once all parties had given their approval, as a matter of course. Again, this will depend on the functioning of the NI Executive.</p>
