The UK government will soon be publishing the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill, known as the Repeal Bill, setting in motion the plan for Brexit.

The bill come a year after Britons voted to leave the European Union. Initially the bill was titled the Great Repeal Bill, but it turns out that the bill has been now named the Repeal Bill. The bill aims to convert thousands of pieces of EU law into British statute on the day the UK Leaves the bloc in March 2019.

Brexit Secretary David Davis said the legislation will allow Britain to leave the EU with “maximum certainty, continuity and control.” But the minority Conservative government faces a fight to get the bill through Parliament. Opposition parties fear the government plans to slip in powers to change laws without scrutiny by lawmakers.
