She said Friday that it's inevitable because the U.K.is leaving the bloc's single market and customs union.

The legislation - created to transpose European Union law into British law so the same rules apply on the day of Brexit as the day before - will see European Union responsibilities in devolved areas initially transferred to Westminster.
"But the question is 'who decides?' and at the moment the UK Government's proposition is that even in areas of devolved competence - agriculture, the environment, fishing, justice - they should be able to impose frameworks on Scotland and Wales, and our position is that where there are devolved areas it should only be by the consent of the Scottish and Welsh parliaments, so I hope we can reach agreement".

But her vision was little changed from an earlier proposal for Britain to be able to diverge from some of the EU's rules and regulations while sticking to others which benefit Britain, a plan the bloc has described as "pure illusion".
She then corrected herself: "To avoid a hard border..."

In it, she rejected as "unacceptable" proposals from Brussels to keep customs union arrangements in Northern Ireland.

In comments recorded on Friday after her major speech on Brexit at Mansion House, the prime minister admitted that the system that allows banks regulated in Britain to "passport" into other European Union countries was off the table.
