This is not an ambulatory statute, so technically the position is that if we were to, if notice is served and we consequently leave the EU this would remain in force, absurd as it is; no doubt in practice it would be changed, but the problem to which statutes like this give rise is a completely different problem to the one arising from the 1972 Act, isn't it; this is simply something which will look very strange but will continue to have effect until Parliament gets round to repealing it.
