United Kingdom Internal Market Bill — Clause 45 — Regulations on Northern Ireland Trade and State Aid — Compliance with Domestic and International Law — 29 Sep 2020 at 18:00
The majority of MPs voted to empower ministers to breach international agreements and other domestic law when making regulations on trade in goods between Northern Ireland and Great Britain and when providing state aid to agriculture in Northern Ireland under the provisions of a United Kingdom Internal Market Act.
The amendment rejected in this vote was:
- Amendment 16, page 37, line 10, leave out Clause 45
Had this amendment not been rejected it would have removed Clause 45 of the Bill, a clause which enabled the Bill to have its intended effect in relation to the movement of goods from Northern Ireland to Great Britain, and state aid to agriculture in Northern Ireland, irrespective of international or domestic law.
