Liz Truss: law to change post-Brexit trade for Northern Ireland
Foreign Secretary Liz Truss says the government’s preference is to reach a negotiated outcome on the N.I. Protocol with the EU.
Liz Truss sets out plans to introduce legislation to make changes to the N.I protocol expected in the next few weeks.
Special trade arrangements known as the Northern Ireland Protocol needed after the UK left the EU.
Simon Coveney, Ireland’s Foreign Affairs Minister, said he told Ms Truss, the Foreign Secretary, during a phone call last night that “breaking international law is not the answer to solving Protocol issues”.
Brussels has warned the UK could be in breach of the law if it proceeds with unilateral action and it has also said such action could trigger a trade war. The UK has insisted that any proposals it brings forward will comply with the law.
