Ms Miller launched her attack after Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg ordered the closure of a cross-party Commons committee set up to examine Britain’s relations with the EU.

She won a legal bid against the UK Government over its authority to implement Brexit without approval from Parliament in 2016 and in September 2019 successfully challenged Boris Johnson's prorogation of Parliament.

Her latest attack on the Government comes after critics claimed Mr Rees-Mogg's move blocked a planned six-month inquiry into the Trade and Cooperation Agreement and also means there is no longer a Commons committee to monitor the implementation of the deal.

Mr Rees-Mogg rejected an appeal from the Committee on the Future Relationship with the European Union - formerly the Committee on Exiting the EU - for a six-month extension beyond its planned closure date of 16 January in order to allow time for an inquiry into the Christmas Eve deal.
