  • Cambridge Law Faculty published this video item, entitled “The UK Internal Market: : Monckton-CELS webinar” – below is their description.

    Leaving the EU internal market has been a clear domestic policy priority of the UK Government albeit one that has encountered political resistance among the constituent nations of the UK. More directly, the repatriation of regulatory powers to the UK also entails an enhanced role for the devolved governments in the elaboration of domestic regulatory policies. However, the risk that regulatory divergence within the UK might create friction in internal trade in goods and services has prompted the UK Government to propose enshrining a Market Access Commitment in UK law. This webinar explores the thinking behind the UK Government’s proposals for a UK Internal Market and how its squares with the responsibilities and ambitions of the devolved governments. Chair: Valentina Sloane Q.C., Monckton Chambers Speaker 1: Professor Jo Hunt, University of Cardiff: ‘The UK Internal Market – a Solution in Search of a Problem?’ Speaker 2: Alan Bates, Monckton Chambers: ‘A Market Access Commitment – The Principles of Mutual Recognition and Non-Discrimination’ Speaker 3: Professor Kenneth Armstrong, University of Cambridge: ‘The Impact of the UKIM on Devolved Powers in Scotland’ Speaker 4: Professor Stephen Weatherill, University of Oxford: ‘Two Internal Markets – the Position of Northern Ireland’ For more details and other events see: https://www.cels.law.cam.ac.uk/weekly-seminar-series

    In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
