Boris Johnson, 57, has brought forward a new ‘Brexit Freedoms’ bill to mark the two-year anniversary since the UK left the European Union.

Speaking about his post-Brexit pledge, 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Bill will end the special status of EU law in our legal framework and ensure that we can more easily amend or remove outdated EU law in future.”

The Prime Minister’s press release also pointed out how the UK had made “significant progress” since leaving the EU on January 31 2020, including ending freedom of movement, securing the vaccine rollout, striking new free trade deals, cutting back on EU red tape and strengthening our standards.
