In the night of Tuesday, September 12, the vote took place at the meeting of the House of Commons of the British Parliament, regarding the Bill of coming out of the European Union (European Union (Withdrawal) Bill), also so called the “Repeal Bill”. The bill is based on the establishment of the primacy of national legislation in Britain over the European in the framework of Brexit, as well as coming out of London from the jurisdiction of the European Court. In addition, the document supposes the cancellation of the Act of the European Communities of 1972, containing the legislative base of about 12,000 provisions, which was developed before the entry of the UK into the EU. The purpose of Repeal Bill is to provide a fully functioning legal system in the country after its coming out of the European Union. The discussion of the document lasted about 13 hours. Based on the counting of votes (326 – for and 290 – against), the bill was adopted. However, for its entry into force, the approval of the House of Lords and the signature of Queen Elizabeth II are necessary. The Labour and many Conservatives are against the “law of annulment”.
