The Scottish Government have published updated material on the UK Government’s Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023. On 29 June 2023, the UK Government’s Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023 received Royal Assent. The Scottish Government opposes the Act, which puts vital protections at risk, threatens to undermine the devolution settlement, and was imposed without the legislative consent of the Scottish Parliament.

For awareness, updated material has now been published on the Scottish Government’s website, including: 

  • new Retained EU Law policy page, providing information about the Scottish Government’s views on and response to the legislation.
  • An updated Retained EU Law factsheet, providing more information about the Act and the risks that the Scottish Government believes it poses to key sectors (including reaction from stakeholders).

The Scottish Government is continuing to engage with the UK Government on the implications of the legislation moving forward.
