British MPs have voted in favour of new legislation giving the government powers to change parts of the Northern Ireland Protocol. This means the Brits are one step closer to overturning the post-Brexit trade agreement, though the bill will now undergo further scrutiny and votes before becoming law. The Guardian reports that it is now expected to be fast-tracked through parliament with a condensed committee stage of just three days, instead of the usual two or three weeks. The Northern Ireland secretary, Brandon Lewis, said the bill was designed to ensure the same free flow of goods from Great Britain to Northern Ireland “as from Great Yarmouth to Carlisle”.
