The bill also clarifies that trade in the UK will operate outside the EU’s single market and customs union, amid concerns in Westminster that Brussels could block travel to Britain from Northern Ireland as part of trade talks.

May continued: “Honestly, my view is that the decision to violate international law does not matter whether it is a minister or this Parliament – it is still a decision to violate international law.
“It can only weaken the UK in the eyes of the world.
“As a nation, our greatest strength is our commitment to the rule of law, which will not fail.
“As a nation, our reputation for standing by its word will be tarnished.
“The willingness of other nations to trust the United Kingdom and its values will diminish.
“Too much for the global UK.”
