The law would break the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement which was signed by the UK and EU last year and Brussels had threatened to walk away from trade deal talks if it was passed in the House of Commons.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is ready to leave the EU next week as he plans to introduce controversial Brexit legislation whether or not a Post-Brexit trade deal is agreed.

The House of Commons is expected to reconsider the controversial Internal Market Bill, including two clauses which ministers have admitted would break international law on Monday.

The law would break the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement which was signed by the UK and EU last year and Brussels had threatened to walk away from trade deal talks if it was passed in the House of Commons.

The UK government has insisted the law was needed to protect British’s internal market in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Mr Johnson’s spokesperson today appeared to indicate the controversial clauses would remain in the Bill even if an agreement is reached by Michel Barnier and David Frost over the weekend which is unlikely considering the EU’s stronghold on the fishing rights.

The only difference is that the part of the law which affects the EU may not be removed as intended if a post-Brexit trade deal was secured.

“The clauses represent a legal safety net to protect the integrity of the UK’s internal market and the huge gains of the peace process.

“Of course, we are committed to working in the joint committee to find a solution but we have an obligation to the people of Northern Ireland to ensure they continue to have unfettered access to the UK under all circumstances,” a spokesperson for Boris Johnson said this afternoon.

In the Brexit deal which was reached last year, the UK and Brussels agreed to set up a joint committee which would monitor goods moving from the UK mainland to Northern Ireland and determine which would be at risk of entering the EU’s single market.
