LIZ Truss yesterday pushed forward with a ‘Brexit Freedoms Bill’ which will see all Brussels rules repealed or replaced by the end of 2023.
It will mean ministers have the power to tear them up completely or replace them with whole new ones – if they see fit.
Around £1billion of red tape rules is expected to be scrapped initially in a bid to help businesses and boost the economy.
Business Secretary Jacob Rees-Mogg hailed Sun readers last night for giving him a heap of ideas of which barmy EU rules to put in the bin.
And he promised he would do all he could to make the lives of Brits easier and better.
He told The Sun: “When the United Kingdom made the historic decision to leave the European Union in 2016, we voted to take back control of our borders, our money and our laws.
“The Brexit Freedoms Bill will end the special status of EU law in the UK’s legal system, meaning we can easily amend or remove outdated laws that have – until now – been a burden on businesses and workers across the country.
“I want to thank the thousands of The Sun readers who sent me excellent suggestions of EU laws we should rip up to help British businesses innovate and invest.
“I will use my powers as Business Secretary to tailor our country’s laws to make the lives of British people easier and better – that is the real Brexit bonus.”
