You may know this:
UK #InternalMarket Bill has arrived @UKHouseofLords.

But what you may not know:
It looks quite different to way it did before, inc. *big* amendments to part on N.Ireland #Protocol...
1/8 Picture of Part 5 of the UK Internal Market bill first page
Eagle-eyed viewers among you will have spotted the first change.
The clauses have different numbers #⃣
Part 5 now starts with 42, not 40.

So the contentious clauses (which, "yes, do break international law") are now:
44 [export declns],
45 [state aid]
& 47 [law? schmaw!].

The amendments made in @HouseofCommons (covered here) were proposed by the UK Govt.

Clause 42 (GB to NI) no change.

Clause 43: changes to allow new checks to occur NI to GB for certain purposes.
