UK: Internal Market Bill is 'deeply concerning'
Responding to today's publication by the UK Government of the Internal Market Bill, Patrick Corrigan, Amnesty International UK’s Northern Ireland Programme Director, said:
“This Bill is deeply concerning in what it says about the government’s attitude towards honouring international legal commitments.
“Worryingly, the Bill fundamentally undermines the Northern Ireland Protocol, which was designed to protect the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement and the principle of no diminution of rights for people in Northern Ireland.
“Beyond our shores, it sends a troubling message that risks undermining the government’s international legal commitments and its support for a rules-based international order.”
