Trading blows

The Government’s draft Taxation (Cross Border Trade) Bill set out proposals for managing trade post-Brexit. This is a vital piece of legislation, partly because the UK currently has no domestic customs law at all, and partly because it would give HMG the powers necessary to apply a deal with the EU27. However, the Government risks making the same mistakes it did with the Withdrawal Bill by explicitly asking MPs to grant powers to “amend or repeal any Act of Parliament whenever passed”. It’s hard to see Grieve and co going along with that.
