Mr Speaker. If this agreement is to pass this house, as I strongly believe it should, I do not believe that it can or should pass under any misapprehension whatsoever as to the legal matters on which that judgment should be based.
There is, therefore, no unilateral right for either party to terminate this arrangement.
So it's a trap!
This means that if no superseding agreement can be reached within the implementation period, the protocol would be activated. And in international law, would subsist even if negotiations had broken down.
