The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (Exit Day) (Amendment) Regulations 2019 were laid in draft form before Parliament yesterday and will be debated in the House of Commons and House of Lords under the draft affirmative procedure. The purpose of these Regulations is to amend section 20 (“Interpretation”) of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 in order to replace the exit day specified therein – 29 March 2019 at 11.00 p.m. – with either 22 May 2019, 11.00 p.m., or 12 April 2019, 11.00 p.m. The Government has published a short document explaining this legislative process: see here (pdf).
