With the closure of the British Parliament for five weeks, the highly entertaining sessions of the House of Commons have been postponed. Could this artificial respite be a realistic opportunity to provide the so-called “alternative customs rules,” which would make backstop redundant? And without the backstop, could the withdrawal agreement soon be ratified, finally paving the way for genuine negotiations on the Treaty on Future Relations between the UK and the EU-27? This policy insight examines the impact of current options on the Irish border and assesses Mr Faull et al.`s latest proposal taking into account considerations of “mutual trust” and compatibility with EU law. If it is not possible to reach agreement on the inclusion of the newly adopted act in the relevant annex of this protocol, consider any other possibility of maintaining the proper functioning of this protocol and taking all necessary decisions to do so. with regard to the procedures covered by Article 29, paragraphs 2, 3 and 4 of Directive 2009/81/EC, Article 33, paragraphs 2 to 5, directive 2014/24/EU and Article 51, paragraph 2, of the 2014/25/EU Directive concern the implementation of the following framework agreements concluded by contracting powers or contracting powers of the Member States or the United Kingdom, including contracting on the basis of such framework agreements: why did the Uk agree? There is only one reason. Because the United Kingdom has obtained the agreement of Article 4 of the political declaration that the United Kingdom has a future relationship at the end of 2020 that would respect the full sovereignty and internal market of the United Kingdom and provide for the continuation of a quasi-fluidity of trade. As most people understand, the proposed future management of customs, internal market regulation and VAT has been negotiated because the EU, THE UK and Ireland are trying to fully preserve the main features of the Good Friday Agreement. The most obvious assumption is that the joint membership of the United Kingdom and Ireland in the EU customs union and internal market would enable Ireland to become “borderless”. The United Kingdom ensures that all specific obligations arising from Community agreements with third countries or international organisations concerning nuclear equipment, nuclear materials or other nuclear elements present in the United Kingdom at the end of the transition period are fulfilled, or to conclude, by other means, appropriate arrangements in agreement with the third country or an international organisation concerned.
