The European Union Withdrawal Act (approximately 16) is an act of the British Parliament that provides for both the repeal of the European Communities Act of 1972 and the approval by Parliament of any withdrawal agreement negotiated between the government and the European Union. The adoption of the law by both Houses of Parliament was completed on 20 June 2018 and came into force on 26 June by royal approval. The law was passed on June 26, 2018 as a law. Section 1 specifies that the European Communities Act 1972 will be repealed on the day of the withdrawal, which is defined in another section, such as 29 March 2019, at 11 p.m. (subject to any possible changes due to a withdrawal agreement or an agreed extension of the negotiating period).  In section 25, paragraph 1, the provisions of the Act that began on June 26, 2018, in subsections 2 and 3, the provisions of the act that began on that date for specific purposes, and the subsection (4) provide that the other provisions come into force on the day or by decree.  At third reading on May 16, 2018, the government suffered its 15th defeat among the Lords, which meant a total of 16 defeats, including the defeat of the Commons Committee. The bill then passed third reading.  The bill had its first reading in the Lords on January 18, 2018 and second reading on January 30 and 31, 2018 and was submitted to a committee of the entire House of Representatives. This lasted eleven days between February 21 and March 28.
 The reporting phase and third reading took place on 16 and 17 January 2018.  The bill passed third reading by 324 votes to 295.  Since writing this article, I have completed work on a co-written article on the study of the European Union Law (withdrawal) 2018 and on the analysis of its constitutional implications: Mark Elliott – Stephen Tierney, `Political Pragmatism and Constitutional Principle: The European Union () Withdrawal Act 2018`. A draft of the article (published in the journal Public Law) can be downloaded here. An analysis of the procedure of the law published by the Institute of Government refers to the contract approval procedure, which is defined in the Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 (CRAG) and which can apply to the withdrawal agreement and the framework agreement for future relations, depending on what they contain. The procedure could prevent ratification, but in exceptional cases, a government can ratify a treaty without consulting Parliament.  Following the entry into force of the law on 26 June 2018, the European Council decided on 29 June to renew its appeal to Member States and trade union institutions to step up their work in the field of preparedness at all levels and for all results.  In response, the National Assembly for Wales passed the European Union (Wales) 2018 Law, which was repealed on 6 June 2018 and shortly after 22 November 2018.
