The Protocol on Ireland/ni-👉 t.co/RaWNEVbxrt pic.twitter.com/1OCjapNd3F Following the agreement announced this afternoon, the government will remove controversial legislative measures from the UK Internal Market Act – which could have repealed the Withdrawal Agreement – and no similar provisions will be introduced into the tax law. The government violated the agreement in September by introducing the Single Market Law, which gives the government the power to repeal parts of the protocol and violate international law in a “limited and specific” way, the ministers said. In a joint statement, Britain and the EU said an “agreement in principle” had been reached on all issues. France, Belgium and the Netherlands have appealed to the European Commission to speed up contingency planning in the absence of an agreement in time. . . .
