UK Prime Minister Race: Liz Truss Vows To Scrap All EU Laws By 2023

Liz Truss (the leading contender to replace Boris Johnson) has promised to abolish all European Union laws in Britain by 2023 if elected to the Conservative Party leadership election.

In a race for the attention of the Conservative Party’s 200,000 members, Foreign Secretary Truss will be up against Rishi Sunak as former finance minister.

The Conservative Party members remain concerned about Britain’s relations with Europe. They are generally more eurosceptic than most of the population.

Truss, who voted for “remain” in 2016 but was now considered the successor to Johnson’s proBrexit position and campaigned to do so, has promised to remove all EU laws from the statutes.

The government automatically transferred thousands of EU laws and regulations to British law in order to prevent confusion after Britain left the EU.
