‘Seven new Brexit bills’ must be passed after Article 50 is triggered

Agriculture is among the key areas that must be addressed by at least seven new Brexit bills, according to leaked Whitehall documents.

Parliament will need to pass at least seven controversial bills to prepare Britain for life outside the European Union, reports The Times.

Each new law, covering immigration, tax, agriculture, trade and customs regimes, fisheries, data protection and sanctions, will give MPs and peers the chance to influence the terms of Brexit.

It will raise concerns in government that bills could be amended or blocked during what is already a tight two-year timetable, says the paper.
