Manx Government seeks views on Brexit Bill

Tue, 17 Apr 2018

The Manx Government wants to hear the public's views on Brexit.

A public consultation on the European Union Withdrawal Bill seeks the opinions of local residents, businesses and organisations.

Chief Minister Howard Quayle says the Bill will make legislative changes to adjust to the Island's new relationship with the European Union.

The Bill will repeal the European Communities Act, enable the UK's Withdrawal Agreement in Manx law and allow some agreements between the Isle of Man and the EU to continue after withdrawal, including the World Trade Organisation and Free Trade Agreements.

The full details of the draft bill can be found on the consultation section of the website, with responses accepted until May 29th.

The bill is due to begin its passage through the branches of Tynwald later this year.
