Give or take 50 percent

George Will on Brexit --

Gove believes that most of the British public, and even most members of Parliament, see the familiar trappings and procedures of the House of Commons — the mace, question time — and think nothing has changed. But most of binding law in Britain — estimates vary from 55 percent to 65 percent — does not arise from the Parliament in Westminster but from the European Commission in Brussels.

Carefully written and sourced actual assessment of this percentage --

It's possible to justify any measure between about 15% to 50% depending on which definition of 'UK law' you look at.
