UK Government White Paper Sets Out Principles and Objectives For Exiting the EU


In White Paper Sets Out UK Government’s Brexit Strategy, Pillsbury partners Tim Wright and Sam Pearse discuss the United Kingdom Government’s recent publication of a White Paper titled The United Kingdom’s exit from and new partnership with the European Union that sets out its Principles and Objectives for exiting the EU. Though the White Paper is silent on construction industry generally, even this sector will likely be impacted in a number of ways including through controls on migrant workers as well as new customs arrangements and tariffs – assuming a hard Brexit. Public Procurement laws in the UK are also likely to change; environmental and health and safety laws may also change once the UK leaves the EU.
