United Kingdom admits it will have to pay Brexit divorce bill

15 Juillet 2017

I can not understand what issue the government have with it.

Parliament is due to go on its summer recess next week with votes on the Great Repeal Bill not due until autumn.

The government has today (13 July) published its long-anticipated Repeal Bill, which is created to convert existing EU laws into United Kingdom domestic law as the country exits the European Union.

It has also indicated that "where rights have been extended by CJEU [European Court of Justice (ECJ)] judgments, those rights will continue to be protected in the United Kingdom once we have left the EU, with those judgments having the same precedent status as the Supreme Court's own judgments".

As the process gets underway it is expected that MPs will seek to change aspects of the bill and table amendments.

The SNP were joined by Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones in voicing protest at the so called "Great Repeal Bill", which will transfer European Union legislation into United Kingdom legislation so it can be altered at a nation state level.

The Frenchman was also due to meet Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones for private talks.

The two regional governments do not technically have to approve the bill. Any substantive changes to policies and standards should be made by primary legislation only, requiring a full and proper role for scientific and parliamentary scrutiny, the campaign group said.

What Analysts Think of Seaworld Entertainment Inc Co (SEAS)?
State Board Of Administration Of Florida Retirement System reported 0% of its portfolio in SeaWorld Entertainment Inc (NYSE:SEAS). Major shareholders that own more than 10% of a company's shares are required to disclose their sales and purchases with the SEC.

Sir Keir Starmer, Labour's shadow Brexit secretary, said European Union citizens "are our society" during the election campaign and said they "should not be used as bargaining chips".

"The bill proposes sweeping new powers for ministers that are fundamentally undemocratic, unaccountable and unacceptable".

Other EU laws, known as directives, are already incorporated into British law.

However, Labour has today demanded six changes to the bill in order to guarantee their support. Another key issue is that the bill does not include the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

The criticism that Mr Blair was out of step with the public was echoed by Robin Walker, a Brexit minister, who said: "The majority of British people voted to leave the EU".

He insisted that European Union leaders would accept tightening up immigration rules to accomodate Britain, so the option of the United Kingdom staying in the bloc should remain open.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn met with the chief Brexit negotiator for the EU, Michel Barnier, in the Belgian capital Brussels on Thursday to explore possible ways to preserve partnership with the bloc.

"I believe we can get a free trade negotiation concluded and a customs union agreement concluded in the [Brexit negotiating] period; what will be much more hard however is to get all the practical implementations that go with it", he told peers, adding that this was a problem "not so much for us" but for others.
