The European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2019, also known as the Repeal Bill is an Act of the Gibraltar Parliament announced by Chief Minister Fabian Picardo, that transposed directly-applicable European Union law into the law of Gibraltar as part of the UK’s exit from the European Union (Brexit).[1] It has the same effect as the similarly named European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 in the UK.[2][3]

The bill was passed with the support of the governing GSLP-Liberal coalition and an independent MP. The opposition Gibraltar Social Democrats originally did not intend to support the bill but later voted for it, but against parts of the legislation.[4][5]
