Motion ref. S6M-05235

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill

Submitted by: Angus Robertson, Edinburgh Central, Scottish National Party.
Date lodged: Monday, June 27, 2022

Supported by: Neil Gray, Paul Sweeney
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Motions as amended

That the Parliament agrees that it is fundamentally unacceptable for the UK Government to unilaterally disapply key parts of the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement, the signing of which the Prime Minister hailed as a “fantastic moment”; further agrees that by proposing this course of action the UK Government is risking a disastrous trade dispute with the European Union, with damaging consequences for Scotland in the midst of a cost of living crisis and at a time when the UK is in danger of falling into recession; condemns that the Bill breaks international law and risks the integrity of the Good Friday Agreement, and calls, therefore, on the UK Government to withdraw the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill and restart negotiations with the EU immediately.
