Boris Johnson shuts down Peston as he denies ECJ influence on UK 'under no circumstances'

1 min read


Robert Peston challenged Prime Minister Boris Johnson after he confirmed a Brexit trade agreement had finally been struck with the European Union.

Mr Peston suggested the UK had to agree to a series of concessions to secure a deal, suggesting some key promises on the influence of European institutions may have been diluted.

Mr Johnson insisted both sides had to agree to reach common ground as he insisted the negotiators had kept firm on the UK’s red-lines regarding the jurisdiction the European Court of Justice (ECJ) will have on British courts from January 31.

The Prime Minister said: “Under no circumstances will we be constrained legally by the EU or will there be any role from the European Court of Justice.”
