Debate on the UK Internal Market Bill begins from 2:15:55.
Watch the House of Commons from 2:30pm on Monday as three days of intensive debate and scrutiny on the United Kingdom Internal Market Bill begins.
Published last Wednesday, the Bill sets out rules for the operation of the UK internal market- trade between England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland- after the end of the transition period in January.
– The establishment of two legal principles, mutual recognition and non-discrimination, to ensure there are no new barriers for businesses trading across the UK, allowing a good or service to be sold anywhere in the UK without discrimination.
– Giving UK ministers powers to modify or “disapply” rules relating to the movement of goods from Northern Ireland to Great Britain that will come into force from 1 January, via the Northern Ireland Protocol, if both sides cannot agree beforehand.
– Powers to override previously agreed obligations with the EU in the Withdrawal Agreement on state aid – government support for businesses.
