Liz Truss plan to bonfire EU laws

During Liz Truss’s election campaign for Prime Minister, the recently resigned Prime Minister vowed to light a bonfire of EU red tape in order to remove the remaining EU laws (approx 1500) from the UK statute book. The EU laws on the British statute book were transferred into British law following Brexit (Britain’s departure from the EU).

Truss believes the move will, along with tax cuts, help to boost growth and encourage new investment in the UK as businesses will find it easier and more cost effective to trade with less regulation.

The announcement mirrored an announcement earlier in 2022 made by her predecessor, Boris Johnson, and should the plan go ahead, the laws will be removed by the end of 2023.
