Legislation allowing the UK to remain in the customs union and the internal market between 1 February and 21 December 2020. 474The NIHRC is required to monitor the implementation of Article 2, paragraph 1, of the protocol (78A, paragraph 1). It will also be required to report to the Secretary of State and the Executive Office of Northern Ireland on the application of Article 2, paragraph 1 of the Protocol (78A, paragraph 2) and to compel them to respond to such a report and to clarify the actions they have taken or are considering taking in response to the recommendations in the report (78A(3)). If the NIHRC submits such a report under subsection 3, the Secretary of State submits a copy of the report to Parliament and the Executive Office must provide a copy to the Assembly (78A (4)). Immediately after the announcement of a revised withdrawal agreement on October 17, 2019, Labour, the Liberal Democrats and the DUP said they could not support the new agreement.  The promise that the government`s position in the negotiations on future relations will be consistent with the political declaration attached to the withdrawal agreement. On the European Union side, the European Parliament also approved the ratification of the agreement on 29 January 2020 and the Council of the European Union approved the conclusion of the agreement by e-mail on 30 January 2020.  That is why, on 30 January 2020, the European Union also tabled its instrument for ratification of the agreement, concluding the agreement and allowing it to enter into force on the date of the UK`s withdrawal from the EU on 31 January 2020, at 11 .m GMT. But it has made some very important changes to the legislation: the suspension of provisions that would have given Parliament a vote on both the mandate of trade negotiations and the final agreement; eliminating protection of workers` rights (weak, admittedly); replace the need for a vote on extending the conversion period with a ban on extension; this has been criticized as a weakening of obligations to unaccompanied children seeking asylum. The withdrawal agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom sets out the conditions for the UK`s orderly exit from the EU, in accordance with Article 50 of the Treaty on european Union.
