Murray – Taylor Report’s aims could be threatened by Brexit Repeal Bill

Commenting on the publication of the Taylor Report today, Ian Murray MP, leading supporter of Open Britain, said:

“The Government’s Repeal Bill is a potential threat to Matthew Taylor's aim of strengthening the rights of workers.

"'Henry VIII’ powers could give Ministers the ability to subtly but importantly alter regulations to the detriment of working people without Parliament being given a say.

“And rights delivered by judgements of the European Court of Justice, such as on holiday pay, could be open to legal challenge from unscrupulous employers in British courts. 

“We need an absolute guarantee by the Government that these rights will be protected, and that no worker will have their rights diminished by Brexit.”
