Minister of State at the Cabinet Office, Lord Frost, and Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (SoSNI), Brandon Lewis, have spoken at the Policy Exchange think tank about the way forward on the Northern Ireland Protocol.
Both Lord Frost and SoSNI reaffirmed the Government’s commitment to protect the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement in all its dimensions. They said that the Protocol was failing in its objectives to minimise impact on everyday lives in Northern Ireland and facilitate trade between Northern Ireland and Great Britain.
Lord Frost announced that the Government is considering its next steps and will set out its approach on the Protocol to Parliament before summer recess.
