Brexit: Cox ensuring 'codpiece in full working order'

In a lighter Brexit moment in the Commons, Geoffrey Cox made reference to his role in trying to make changes to the Northern Ireland backstop.

When asked by Labour MP Helen Goodman about government policy towards reopening the withdrawal agreement, the attorney general said he was keen to ensure that what was in 'Cox's Codpiece' was in full working order".
