To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what progress he has made in laying statutory instruments related to EU exit preparedness; and if he will make a statement.
Answer (David Rutley)
The Government has made good progress in laying the up to 600 statutory instruments required by exit day to ensure a functioning statute book. As of 30 January, my department has laid 92 exit related statutory instruments. All exit related statutory instruments are published on legislation.gov.uk, and include ‘EU Exit’ in their title.
