Yesterday, a conclusion was made on the current withdrawal agreement amendment from the The European Parliament’s UK Coordination Group (UKCG).
The UKCG concluded that the UKCG members were “deeply concerned and disappointed that the UK Government published an Internal Market Bill that clearly represents a serious and unacceptable breach of international law.”
The UKCG state that this move by the UK government “violates the Withdrawal Agreement that was signed and ratified by the current UK Government and Parliament less than a year ago.”
They continue saying: “The Internal Market Bill gravely damages the trust and credibility that the European Parliament has already said is “an essential element of any negotiation”, thus putting at risk the ongoing negotiations on the future relationship.”
The UKCG group say they wholeheartedly support Michel Barnier in his calls for the immediate withdrawal the measures from the bill, they then give a deadline of end of September to comply with their demands.
