The Prime Minister celebrated the two-year anniversary of Getting Brexit Done by announcing the creation of the Brexit Freedoms Bill. In a release, he said the bill will ensure that the “special status” of EU law in the UK will come to an end as well as guarantee that “it can be more easily amended or removed”.
It will also involve a major cross-government drive to cut £1billion of red tape for businesses and improve regulation.
It follows the PM’s New Year’s Day pledge to go “further and faster” to maximise the benefits of Brexit in 2022.
Political analyst Mujtaba Rahman branded the release Mr Johnson’s “answer to David Frost and Tory hardliners”.
His tweet came shortly after Lord Frost told GB News that Number 10 was hit by “instability and chaos”.

Regarding infrastructure and Levelling Up, the country can more easily exclude poorly performing suppliers and enhancing our public health system by reforming clinical trials and medical devices legislation.
Reforming environmental regulation, 80 percent of which came from the EU, will help deliver cleaner air, create new habitats, and reduce waste, while changing the rules on gene-edited organisms, to enable more sustainable and efficient farming, the Government said.
Leaving the bloc has also allowed the Government to support business and industry in a better and more agile way, it said.
Since Brexit, the UK has taken an ambitious approach in financial services areas previously regulated by the EU, simplifying unnecessary reporting burdens firms, the Government said.
All of this combines to make the “most of an unprecedented opportunity to forge new alliances and strengthen our partnerships around the world” as Global Britain.
Unveiling the Bill, Mr Johnson said: “Getting Brexit Done two years ago today was a truly historic moment and the start of an exciting new chapter for our country.
“We have made huge strides since then to capitalise on our newfound freedoms and restore the UK’s status as a sovereign, independent country that can determine its own future.
“The plans we have set out today will further unleash the benefits of Brexit and ensure that businesses can spend more of their money investing, innovating and creating jobs.
“Our new Brexit Freedoms Bill will end the special status of EU law in our legal framework and ensure that we can more easily amend or remove outdated EU law in future”.
Attorney General Suella Braverman said: “Setting up a mechanism to deal with these legacy EU rules is essential.
“It underpins our ability to grasp important opportunities provided by Brexit.
“It means we can move away from outdated EU laws that were the result of unsatisfactory compromises within the EU, some of which the UK voted and lobbied against – but was required to adopt without question.”
