Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis has said a new bill to amend the UK’s Brexit deal with the EU will “break international law”. He conceded it would go against the treaty in a “specific and limited way”.
The legislation being brought forward would violate parts of the withdrawal agreement, negotiated last year with the EU and signed this year.

The Trade Bill setting out the UK’s future trade policy will have its second reading on Wednesday 20 May.
In its present form the Bill contains no protection from trade deals for the NHS or for drug prices.
Both the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State for International Trade have publicly promised that the NHS is not “for sale” and that it will not be the subject of future negotiations.
It is important that these promises are written into law and the Bill needs to be amended to ensure this is the case.
Please email Laura Trott or Tom Tugendhat NOW urging them to try and make this happen. If neither of these is your MP or if you want to write something different you can change the template.

SSTIE Campaign in Sevenoaks Saturday 12th Oct
In the last month SSTIE has invited local political parties who are in favour of a People’s Vote to join with us in a Remain alliance and campaign together. As a result, we had visits to the stall in Sevenoaks from Kyle Marsh PPC for the LDs in Dartford and Helen Fiorini of the Labour Party. This cooperation will hopefully develop and will be invaluable going forward in the event of another Referendum.

The principal message to take from this is very encouraging for Remain in that across West Kent there is an 11% rise in support for Remain largely coming from those who declared that they didn’t vote in 2016.
We had another very interesting day’s campaigning on Saturday 20th September in Sevenoaks where the focus of the Brexitometer was “How would you vote now?” .
