Quote of the day 15th September 2021

"I have absolutely no desire to use these measures.

They are an insurance policy

And if we reach agreement with our European friends, which I still believe is possible, they will never be invoked.

And, of course, it is the case that the passing of this Bill does not constitute the exercise of these powers.

If they were ever needed, ministers would return to this House with a statutory instrument on which a vote would be held."

(Extract from the speech by PM Boris Johnson yesterday. referring to the measures in the Internal Market bill which have been particularly controversial.)
