First Minister Mark Drakeford acknowledges that "Brexit is going to happen, we must now focus on how it happens”.
He says the Welsh Government cannot ask the Senedd to give legislative consent to the Withdrawal Agreement Bill because it "emphatically does not meet the interests of Wales".
He says "it takes us backwards not forwards" and lacks protections for the interests of Wales and devolution.
"A mandate for Brexit is not a mandate for bad legislation," he says, claiming the protocol on Northern Ireland will cause friction at Welsh ports.
The law would allow the amendment of the Government of Wales Act, he tells the chamber, accusing the UK government of a "unilateral rewriting of the devolution settlement".
The next topic is a legislative consent motion on the European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill.
AMs are expected to vote against Boris Johnson's Brexit law.
It would not stop the bill from becoming law, but would mean all three of the UK's devolved law-making bodies will have rejected the EU withdrawal agreement.
The next item is the Business Statement and Announcement.

Brexit Party group leader Mark Reckless suggests proposals from Cardiff council for a congestion charge would be a tax on Newport, Bridgend and the Valleys.
Mark Drakeford says a letter issued by transport minister Ken Skates to Cardiff council says the Welsh Government needs to consider any new "demand management mechanism" by the authority, and is commissioning a detailed study to form a national position on the issue.Copyright: BBC
Plaid Cymru leader Adam Price raises the case of Connor Marshall, who was murdered by David Braddon who was under the supervision of a privately run community rehabilitation company. He said the policy decision to privatise probation was "catastrophic".
First Minister Mark Drakeford replies the "destruction" of the probation service is a “stain on the record of the previous Conservative government” with “devastating practical consequences”.
Mr Drakeford says he has long argued that probation should be devolved.
Conservative group leader Paul Davies says the Welsh Government's policy on bovine TB "is not working".
A record 12,799 cattle were slaughtered in the year to August, a 28% increase compared with the same period in 2018.
He says the Welsh farming sector is under a “huge amount of pressure”.
The first minister replies the figures are the result of "greater sensitivity in testing and greater testing regimes".
Mr Drakeford adds he recognises “the sense of strain in farming communities” as the UK leaves the EU. He says there has been a 37% decrease in new bovine TB incidents in the last decade. “We do need to do more,” he acknowledges.Copyright: BBC

She calls on the first minister to "address the serious issue" of winter pressures.
Mark Drakeford points out that "the pressures on the NHS are relentless and demand continues to grow".
