The Isle of Man's Chief Minister, Howard Quayle, has said his government will provide details of the legislative changes necessitated by Brexit during the course of next year.
His statement follows the recent Queen's Speech in which the UK Government set out its legislative agenda for the next parliament, including eight Bills to deal with Brexit.
Quayle said there were no real surprises in the Brexit Bills, but the Isle of Man will need to consider, as a priority, legislation in relation to immigration, customs, and the UK Government's Repeal Bill, which repeals the European Communities Act 1972 and transposes current EU laws into UK law. He said changes are also likely to be required in respect of agriculture and fisheries.
Quayle concluded by saying that Brexit is going to be a complicated process, but that he wanted to be as open as possible with politicians, businesses, and the public about the legislative changes his government will be proposing.
