Leslie – Ministers must protect rights in the Repeal Bill or risk another broken Brexit promise

Commenting on reports that the Repeal Bill will remove the right of UK citizens to sue the Government, Chris Leslie MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said: 

“This is exactly what we were told the Repeal Bill would not be used for but it looks like another broken Brexit promise.

“Ministers have repeatedly pledged not to use Brexit to undermine our rights but those warm words are not being backed up by action.

“The wording in the Bill is so broad that it represents a fundamental watering down of rights to redress against the state and Ministers should be made to justify such a change. 

“The Government should do what it said it would and ensure in law that none of our rights are lost after Brexit.”
