Britain will keep EU laws during Brexit transition - document

LONDON, July 24 (Reuters) - Britain set out on Tuesday how it plans to keep European Union laws during its transition out of the bloc from March next year, saying elements of the 1972 laws which make Britain a member of the bloc would need to be saved.

“Our view is that repealing and saving the effect of the ECA (European Communities Act), for the time limited duration of the implementation period, is the most effective way to provide continuity and certainty to businesses and individuals,” a Brexit department policy document said.
