“Citizens and businesses would have an additional three months after exit day to start court cases where they believe the general principles of EU law have not been followed prior to exit day,” a statement from the Brexit department said.

It said the changes, which if approved by lawmakers would be added to Brexit legislation currently passing through parliament, would boost legal certainty.
