Brexit update. In a recent post about the UPC after Brexit (here), IPKat queried what happens to statutory instruments made under the European Communities Act 1972 (ECA) if the ECA is repealed? A big Kat pat of gratitutde goes to Scott Wortley for his detailed answer here, and to everyone who eng@ged with us on twitter. It seems that the repeal of the ECA will by implication repeal the secondary legislation. However, this is only the case to to the extent that there is no "contrary intention" to save the legislation made under the ECA.
