Boris Johnson has won the support of the Commons for Brexit powers that violate international law – BBC News

Published

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has come under heavy criticism from the House of Commons – and from five former prime ministers – when he asked parliamentarians to discuss the Internal Market Bill. The new law would go beyond part of the UK’s withdrawal agreement with the European Union – an agreement reached by Boris Johnson himself last year. The House of Representatives voted to pass the bill, despite the Conservatives increasingly rejecting the government. David Cameron has become the last former prime minister to criticize the plans. Boris Johnson says the bill could be necessary to “ensure the integrity of the UK’s internal market”, especially with regard to the movement of goods between Britain and Northern Ireland. The bill still requires the support of the House of Lords, and is likely to face more opposition. Huw Edwards presents political editor Laura Kuenssberg at BBC News Ten.
