Brexit minister signs order to end all EU law in Britain
  Source:, Aug 19, 2019
  Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay has signed an order that will end all European Union (EU) Law applying in Britain from Oct. 31, 2019. Barclay has signed into law legislation to repeal the Act of Parliament which set in stone Britain's EU (then EEC) membership in 1972. 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 Oct. 31.
  Our Case Studies:
  In a referendum held on June 23, 2016, Britain decided to exit the EU and snap relations with the 28-member nations club. Ever since the UK joined the EU, there had been heated debates on the value of its membership in the bloc that had prompted the emergence of a group of euroskeptics in Britain who led the movement for Britain’s exit, or Brexit, from the EU.
