Some lawyers LOL

If we count every law passed by the European Commission between 1993 and 2014 as a "UK law from Brussels" then there have been 49,699 of them.

This is probably too high since some laws relate to non-UK things like Olive growing.

So let us take a smaller number, say 20,000?
How many lawyers will it take to rewrite these? Depends if they are short or long laws?
How many will have to be voted on in Parliament?

"The people won't mind the cost" Apart from those who thought some money savings would go to the NHS "Boris Johnson says NHS will get substantial extra funds after Brexit" Source
Seems I got it wrong

May and the Brexit secretary, David Davis, will announce the government’s plan to repeal the 1972 European Communities Act and there will be new legislation to transpose EU legislation into British law, in its entirety,

That law will only come into force on the day Britain leaves the EU, with future governments then able to unpick those laws as desired.

So the"good news" for the leavers is the UK will continue to have to follow all EU laws until March 2019; after that date then maybe some future Govt. will change things
