Head of UK government's legal department quits over Brexit deal threat - FT

Tue, 8th Sep 2020 10:38

LONDON, Sept 8 (Reuters) - The head of the British
government's legal department has quit over suggestions that
Prime Minister Boris Johnson is threatening to override the
Brexit divorce deal with the European Union, the Financial Times
said on Tuesday.

The newspaper said Jonathan Jones was leaving his job due to
a dispute with Johnson's office over its reported plans to
undercut the Withdrawal Agreement treaty signed in January in
relation to the Northern Ireland protocol.
