UK's Johnson says internal market bill protects jobs, growth and trade

Wed, 30th Sep 2020 12:24

LONDON, Sept 30 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris
Johnson said the controversial internal market bill, which sets
out technical details for post-Brexit trade between the
constituent parts of the United Kingdom, aimed to protect jobs
across the whole of the country.

"All this bill does actually is devolve power back from
Brussels to Edinburgh," he said in response to a question from
the Westminster leader of the Scottish nationalists.

"What this bill does is it protects jobs, it protects
growth, it protects trade in the United Kingdom and that is the
most important thing."
