Mr Johnson said the law would protect jobs and growth – and was a „massively revolting act“ that would constitute a „very significant transfer of power and sovereignty“ to Scotland and Wales. „We could not support an agreement with the EU that would prevent the UK from independently negotiating shares of thought and quotas…. Access and quota shares cannot be included in the future economic partnership. A few days before the end of the transitional period for Brexit, it remains unclear whether there will be a new agreement between Britain and the EU if it ends. But some things will change, whether there is an agreement or not. This briefing outlines the main changes and preparations for the UK and the EU. It was signed „assuming that further agreements could be reached to clarify these aspects,“ the spokesman added. Through extensive consultation and commitment, it has respected the spirit and letter of the decentralization regime. Changes have been made to recognise the legitimate concerns of our partners within the Scottish and Welsh powers. We have also worked closely with the Public Service of Northern Ireland in the absence of the executive. It is important to note that, despite the arguments of some detached legislators, there has been no demand to approve Brexit as a whole.
In accordance with the decentralisation agreements, they were asked to approve specific parts of the law that fall under the decentralized jurisdiction or other legislative procedures. „As part of the comprehensive economic partnership, a new fisheries agreement will be concluded by… access to waters and quotas that can be used in a timely manner to determine fishing opportunities for the first year following the transition period.“ These letters describe the British government`s view that the decentralisation agreements would not be intended to prevent devolved administrations from exercising powers reserved by the British government. The UK government hoped that the Scottish and Welsh governments would consider the bill on the basis of the provisions for which we have sought approval, including the significant powers given to them to protect the rights of citizens. The „backstop“ agreement also obliges the United Kingdom to maintain common minimum standards „to ensure the proper functioning of the single customs territory,“ including in the broad areas of environmental policy, employment policies and state aid, with independent monitoring and enforcement. We will continue to respect and respect the Sewel Convention and the decentralization agreements. Ministers say legislation is needed to prevent „damaging“ tariffs on goods travelling from the rest of the UK to Northern Ireland if negotiations with the EU for a free trade agreement fail. Scotland`s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: „The Conservatives` bill for the so-called UK internal market is an abomination.
It is a naked takeover that would cripple decentralization. Former Prime Minister Sir John Major said: „For generations, Britain`s word – solemnly given – has been accepted by friend and foe. Our signature on every contract or agreement was untouchable. In the withdrawal agreement with the EU, Northern Ireland is still in the UK, but it must comply with elements of the EU customs code. But this is not the prevailing opinion within the British government, which sees itself as the sole responsible for EU relations – which are reserved in decentralisation agreements – and issues that concern the UK as a whole. It is a statement of evidence to say that the fate of the draft withdrawal agreement is in doubt. In addition to opposition from pro-Brexit Conservatives (and some pro-Remain), opposition parties seem united in their determination to vote against the deal when it comes to Parliament.
