The European Communities Act 1972 is the vehicle that sees regulations flow into British law directly from the EU's lawmaking bodies in Brussels.

The order will repeal the 1972 Act, and bring the European Union Withdrawal Act into force.

The repeal of the 1972 Act will take effect when Britain formally leaves the EU on October 31.
