Consequences of the British Government Breaking International Law

Consequences of the British Government Breaking International Law
That this Assembly is appalled that the British Government has abandoned any pretence of adherence to international law; recognises that the potential for a Trade Agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom has significantly diminished as a result of the British Government reneging on key elements of the Withdrawal Agreement; acknowledges that this would be devastating for workers and families with inevitable business failures, job losses and economic damage; and calls on the British Government to respect the rule of law and honour its obligations in full as set out in the Withdrawal Agreement which it negotiated and which the British Parliament agreed.
