Responding to the news that the Government has abandoned the international law breaking elements in the Internal Market bill, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said: “This is welcome news but let’s not forget how we got here: the Government wasted months threatening to break international law before spectacularly back-pedalling, damaging Britain’s international reputation in the process.
