Government puts plans in place to protect UK energy legislation during a no-deal Brexit scenario
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) plans to bring to Parliament, before the upcoming recess, a series of statutory instruments (SIs) to be made under the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018, in preparation for a possible no-deal scenario.
These instruments ensure legislative continuity by making retained EU legislation in relation to the UK electricity and gas markets “workable” post departure. They are a sensible contingency in the event of the UK leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement in place.
