The staunch Brexiteer previously suggested the UK would become an EU vassal state if Brussels continued to impose ECJ jurisdiction and demand budget contributions during the transitional period.
Earlier this year Mr Rees-Mogg challenged Brexit Secretary David Davis during his testimony in front of the Brexit Select Committee, asking how Britain will leave the European Union if not as a vassal state.
He said: “It’s hard to think of any precedent in the world where an independent nation has taken the judgements of a fine court of its superior and immediate law without having any judge on that law.”
The Brexit Secretary confirmed the transition period is “no longer an implementation of the consequences of leaving.”
Mr Davis has faced criticism after agreeing a two-year transition period where Britain is effectively set to stay in the single market and customs union during the transition.
