The Withdrawal Agreement sets out the conditions for the UK`s orderly withdrawal from the EU. It contains detailed provisions for the dismantling of ongoing processes and agreements in a wide range of areas. Following an unprecedented vote on 4 December 2018, MPs decided that the UK government was flouting Parliament for refusing to give Parliament all the legal advice it had received on the impact of its proposed withdrawal conditions.  The key point of the opinion concerned the legal effect of the “backstop” agreement for Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the rest of the UK with regard to the EU-UK customs border and its impact on the Good Friday Agreement, which had led to an end to the unrest in Northern Ireland – and in particular whether the UK would be safe, to be able to leave the EU in a practical sense according to the draft proposals. The United Kingdom has taken the position that it cannot now accept the effects of certain provisions of the Withdrawal Agreement, as they apply to Northern Ireland. At the same time, the Internal Market Act explicitly recognises the legal validity of the Northern Ireland Protocol and contains some exceptions to the functioning of the UK internal market in order to allow the Protocol to function. The Brexit Withdrawal Agreement, officially titled “Agreement on the Withdrawal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland from the European Union and the European Atomic Energy Community”, is a treaty between the European Union (EU), Euratom and the United Kingdom (UK), signed on 24 January 2020, which sets out the conditions for the United Kingdom`s withdrawal from the EU and Euratom. The text of the treaty was published on 17 October 2019 and is a renegotiated version of an agreement published six months earlier. The previous version of the Withdrawal Agreement was rejected three times by the House of Commons, leading Queen Elizabeth II to accept Theresa May`s resignation as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and to appoint Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister on 24 July 2019. The 2019 revisions also adapted elements of the political declaration, replacing the word “appropriate” with “appropriate” in relation to labour standards. .
