Boris Johnson wins Commons backing for Brexit powers that breach international law – BBC News

The prime minister Boris Johnson has faced scathing criticism in the House of Commons – and from five former prime ministers – as he called on MPs to back his controversial Internal Market Bill.

The new law would override part of the the UK’s withdrawal agreement with the European Union — a deal agreed by Boris Johnson himself last year.

The House of Commons voted to pass the bill, despite a growing number of Conservatives refusing to back the government.

David Cameron has become the latest former prime minister to criticise the plans.

Boris Johnson claims the bill could be needed in order to “ensure the integrity of the UK’s internal market”, particularly in relation to the movement of goods between Britain and Northern Ireland.

The bill still requires the support of the House of Lords, where it is likely to face further opposition.
