PM Johnson says bill will stop European Union using "stick" against UK

Michael Barnier is seen leaving EU-Brexit talks in central London

Johnson also mentioned that he had no desire to use the measures.

The delay was linked to Britain's perceived unpicking of the Withdrawal Agreement it signed with the bloc, the source added. "They are an insurance policy".

Johnson has faced criticism from all quarters over the proposed Internal Market Bill, with senior figures in the Labor and Conservative parties both condemning the proposal.

The EU has ramped up preparations for a no-deal Brexit, which would be chaotic for business, markets and almost $1 trillion (780.03 billion pounds) in annual trade.

The U.K. formally left the bloc on January 31, but existing trade rules remain in effect until the end of this year under a transition created to provide time to negotiate a long-term trade agreement.

Johnson, who has a majority of 80 in the lower house of parliament, faces a growing revolt. But there is wide unease within the Conservative Party about the law-breaking move.

He told The Week in Politics that the British Government's behavior was "no way to do business" and said earlier in the week that he was not optimistic about a Brexit deal since the bill had been introduced.

"I simply can not approve or endorse a situation in which we go back on our word, given solemnly", Cox, previously a strong supporter of Johnson on Brexit, told Times Radio. "This is the wrong thing to do, it's not necessary and it's deeply damaging for the country".

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's Internal Market bill, Blair and Major said, "questions the very integrity" of the UK.

Johnson claimed that in the event of no deal between Britain and Brussels, the European Union had threatened to introduce an instant and automatic prohibition of animal products from Britain's mainland to Northern Ireland.

He pledged that there would be no return of a hard border in Northern Ireland.

Johnson says the UK Internal Market Bill will ensure "unfettered access" for trade after that within the UK's four nations - Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Cox urged ministers to use the "clear and lawful" options under the agreement to remedy their concerns that food imports may be blocked from Great Britain to Northern Ireland.

But Johnson claimed the European Union was ready to go to "extreme and unreasonable lengths" and to use these arrangements to "exert leverage" in the trade negotiations. On Monday a third, David Cameron, said he had "misgivings".

Rehman Chishti, the prime minister's special envoy on freedom of religion and belief, has resigned in protest at the Internal Market Bill and its implications for the backstop. He tweeted Monday that as a former lawyer, "values of respecting rule of law & honouring one's word are dear to me".

"How are we going to strike trade deals with other countries in the future if they think they can't trust our word".

"During my ten years in Parliament and before that as a barrister, I have always acted in a manner which respects the rule of law".

Boris Johnson is facing a backlash from former prime ministers and his own MPs.

Meanwhile wrangling over a free-trade agreement continues in Brussels this week as the process hits a critical point. Both sides say any deal must be agreed by next month so there is time for it to be ratified by December 31.

That would mean huge economic disruption for the United Kingdom, which does half its trade with the bloc.
