Much atttention has been paid to the fact that the Internal Market Bill puts the UK in breach of international law. It also however, raises extremely serious questions of domestic law with far reaching implications outside of this specific legislative context.#internalmarketsbill
Clauses 42, 43 and 45(2) allow Ministers to adopt regulations in respect of controls on NI-GB imports & state aid, allowing Ministers to disapply any domestic law or remedy. The far reaching nature of these enabling clauses is extraordinary. Let us consider some hypotheticals:
State aid contingent on support for a particular political party; the exclusion of the bribery act; the imposition of a nationality requirement in relation to imports; the imposition of a discriminatory charge; the exclusion of FOI, individual tax benefits; secret guidance etc.
