Under the Irish Protocol of the Withdrawal Agreement, Northern Ireland effectively remains in the EU customs union in order to avoid customs controls. The Scottish Government has recommended that the Scottish Parliament not approve legislation on the implementation of the revised withdrawal agreement (EU withdrawal agreement), as there is no democratic mandate in Scotland to leave the EU.

Paragraph 10 stated that it was still committed to the implementation of the withdrawal agreement.
