Brandon Lewis, UK's Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, said in a statement on Wednesday, the discussion on amendments on the controversial Internal Market Bill is ongoing.
“Answer I gave on breaking international law was very clear to a clear question.”
“Important now to refer to government legal advice.”
“We've been clear we want to find positive solutions with the joint committee.”
“Optimistic we can still find a way through via joint committee.”
“Has become clear through joint committee process the EU isn't willing to work in a way that allows us to keep our guarantees to N. Ireland.”
“Government approach to Internal Market Bill does not break ministerial code.”
The above comments dragged the pound a few pips lower against the greenback, with GBP/USD now back to the 1.2900 level, still adding 0.19% on the day.
