UK minister: Hopefully we will never have to use Brexit treaty busting powers

LONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Britain hopes never to have to use proposed powers to break its Withdrawal Agreement with the European Union, Northern Ireland Office minister Robin Walker said on Monday during a debate on new legislation.

“We would not take these steps lightly, we would hope it will never be necessary to use these powers, and we would only do so if, in our view, the EU was engaged in a material breach of its duties of good faith or other obligations,” Walker told parliament.
