Irish PM Martin: We got no heads up from the UK on this latest move
Comments by Irish prime minister, Micheál Martin
- Extremely concerned about the unilateral nature of the UK's move
- The timing of which raises questions about their motivation
- To register 'very strong concerns' to Boris Johnson later today
Despite the push back above, Martin says that "where there is a will, there is a way" in getting to a Brexit deal so at least there is still some hope in that regard.
But the focus today will be all about the internal market bill, which is scheduled to be published some time around 1130 GMT following the PMQs session.
Meanwhile, EU chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, is reported to have arrived in London for the start of negotiations. This is the schedule for Brexit talks this week.
