From a David Davis speech/statement on the Great Repeal Bill:
To overcome this, the great repeal bill will provide a power to correct the statute book where necessary to resolve the problems which will occur as a consequence of leaving the EU
Along the lines of the Save Parliament campaign @Floppy and I were involved in many years ago, we should perhaps try to spur a campaign aimed at making sure the Great Repeal Bill doesn’t give ministers too much power.
We could make it separate to SN but with the party as supporters, and try to get other parties (including the big ones) as well as individual elected representatives and members of the public, to become supporters. It’d scrutinise the legislation (we’ll need to rope in our legal friends) and help rally supporters to lobby MPs to ensure the bill doesn’t hand too much power to ministers and upholds parliamentary scrutiny.
What do you think? Can we do it?
