The majority of MPs voted not to explicitly require laws on the movement of goods in and out of Northern Ireland to comply with the agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom relating to the United Kingdom's withdrawal from the union.

  • That provision (including provision imposing and regulating new duties of customs) may be made in connection with goods in Northern Ireland and their movement into and out of Northern Ireland (whether the movement begins or ends in Great Britain or elsewhere).

the amendment rejected in this vote stated:

  • at end add
  • “;
  • but any such provision must not place the United Kingdom in breach of its obligations under the Agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community which entered into force on 1 February 2020, and specifically its obligations under the Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland of that Agreement.”
