United Kingdom Internal Market Bill — Decline Third Reading — Free Movement of Goods and Professionals Within the UK — 29 Sep 2020 at 20:05
The majority of MPs voted in favour of the free movement, and sale, of goods, and mutual recognition of professional qualifications, within the United Kingdom.
The motion rejected by the majority of MPs in this vote was:
- That this House
- declines to give a Third Reading to the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill because it contains provisions which allow the Government to break commitments it has made under international law, and because it does not have the agreed consent to legislate within the competencies of the devolved legislatures which is contrary to the established devolution settlement.
- generally provides that goods produced in, or imported from outside the United Kingdom into, one part of the United Kingdom, and which can be legally sold there, are able to be sold in any other part of the United Kingdom.
- retains powers for devolved administrations to regulate goods produced in, or imported from outside the United Kingdom into, their part of the United Kingdom.
- generally prohibits different treatment of local goods vs those from other parts of the United Kingdom
- prohibits new checks on goods moving between Great Britain and Northern Ireland
- Expressly makes clear that provisions relating to Northern Ireland have effect notwithstanding any relevant international or domestic law with which they may be incompatible or inconsistent
- provides for consistent recognition of professional qualifications across the United Kingdom
