Foreign Secretary Liz Truss is due to publish legislation on Monday that would allow the Government to unilaterally override parts of the deal agreed with Brussels.
As part of Brexit negotiations, the UK and EU agreed to the so-called ‘Northern Ireland protocol’, which is designed to avoid the need for a hard border on the island of Ireland.
But this has led to disruption to goods crossing the Irish Sea, with new checks imposed on those moving to the province. Concerns have also been raised that Northern Ireland’s place within the UK is being undermined, with the Democratic Unionist Party blocking the formation of a power-sharing executive at Stormont until the issue is resolved.
The Government intends to use domestic law to reduce the checks required.
Sir Keir said yesterday Labour would vote against the Bill in the Commons and repeal it if the party comes to power.
代替, he argued the focus should be on achieving a negotiated settlement with the EU to resolve issues with the protocol’s implementation.
‘We would scrap the legislation and I think there has been an impasse in the negotiations because we haven’t seen the high levels of trust that we need for negotiations like this, not least from our Prime Minister,’ he said during a visit to Belfast.
‘I do not think that the remaining issues of the protocol cannot be resolved with a different approach… with an honest broker prime minister getting people around the table and negotiating what needs to be negotiated.’

Opponents of leaving the EU have made a series of interventions in recent days suggesting the UK should pursue a softer Brexit. Among many was Tobias Ellwood, one of the Prime Minister’s most vocal critics on the Tory backbenches, who last week called for Britain to rejoin the EU’s single market.
The chairman of the Commons defence committee suggested the country should opt for a soft Brexit even if it means accepting the free movement of people.
But Mr Jenkinson, MP for Workington, said the narrative that Brexit must be watered down or reversed is gathering ‘at a dangerous pace’ and ‘must be guarded against’.
'在 2016 并再次在 2019 we were left without any ambiguity – the nation wanted Brexit done,' 他说.
‘Boris Johnson delivered on that promise and we continue to forge our own path.’
Fellow Tory Brendan Clarke-Smith, who represents Bassetlaw, 添加: ‘They are always at it and can’t let it rest. [主] Adonis [the Labour ex-Cabinet minister] let the cat out of the bag when he said, “If Boris goes, Brexit goes.”’
