Brexiteer William Cash has warned the EU could invoke “retaliatory measures” if the UK tries to use the “veto” included in Rishi Sunak’s Brexit deal.

He criticised the Stormont Brake, saying he is “not impressed”.

MPs debated the statutory instrument this afternoon, ahead of a vote at 2.30pm.

The Prime Minister is braced for a significant Tory rebellion on the legislation after the powerful European Research group advised its members to vote against it.

Boris Johnson, Liz Truss and Sir Iain Duncan Smith – three former Conservative leaders – as well as former Home Secretary Priti Patel have all said they will all vote against the deal.

Mr Johnson said the new arrangements would mean the “whole of the UK” was unable “properly to diverge and take advantage of Brexit”.
